On the occasion of Global Entrepreneurship Week, this photo shows some female microfinance borrowers in India, illustrating both the relatively small size of many microfinance loans and how these transactions are often conducted in cash.

Millions of people around the world lack access to any sort of formal financial services and even small loans can bring a significant benefit in helping them start or grow a business. OPIC partners with multiple financial institutions around the world to support this sort of lending to entrepreneurs and small businesses.
