Microfinance: providing financial services to poor individuals, households, and communities by delivering financial services on the "micro" level as a means to promote economic development (e.g. very small loans, savings accounts for small deposits, etc.). Microfinance institutions ( MFIs ) are active mostly in the developing world, although some have established themselves in the U.S. and Europe . Opportunities for MBAs are most plentiful at such domestic organizations, and at the management level within international development agencies, donor agencies, and policy / advocacy groups.
