 Welcome to the subject guide. This guide will provide students, researchers and staff with access to subject and information resources.




Search Terms

Microfinance is a developing field and the terms used to describe its practices are still evolving. For example, if you only search for "microfinance," database search engines may not know that you are also interested in related concepts such as micro finance, microlending and rural lending.

For that reason, when conducting your online research, be sure to also search for terms such as:

  • Microbanking
  • Microcredit
  • Microsavings
  • Microloan
  • Microlending
  • Microinsurance
  • Rural credit
  • Rural lending
  • Social enterprise
  • Social lending
  • Social entrepreneurship
  • Social ventures
