What is micro-finance?

Micro-finance is a general term describing financial services offered to those living below the poverty line, and includes micro-lending, micro-savings, and micro-insurance. At the Radical Coffee Project, we have been extending interest-free microloans to aspiring entrepreneurs throughout the world.

Micro-finance goes beyond philanthropy—it is a powerful, sustainable tool for social and economic transformation. In developing areas where banks are unwilling or unable to extend credit, we offer opportunity to those who have been excluded from traditional financial resources.
