Working Paper from European Microfinance Network
Microfinance has brought a change in the economic life of participants of the society by providing an opportunity to the financially challenged individuals to become financially independent. Microfinance is a financial instrument that can be utilized to combat poverty and other challenges hindering the progress of countries. As of 2017, the global figures of microfinance confirm that microfinance has impacted the lives of more than 139 million people and has distributed more than $114 billion throughout the world. In Turkey, microfinance has radically transformed the lives of more 180.000 financially challenged individuals. Turkey continues to be home to the worldâ€™s largest refugee population which is approximately 4 million.
