Need Assessment of Islamic Microfinance

We are in great need of Islamic microfinance to be implied due to the failure of microfinance structure all over the world and its most unprecedented example is India where microfinance companies had failed after a biggest clampdown due to exorbitant interest rates. Islamic microfinance has traits to provide a parallel support to the poorest of the poor and its imminent qualities leaves no room for structural devastation as emphasizes ethical, moral & social factors to promote equality and fairness for the good of the society. It is estimated that 3 billion people are living below the poverty line around the world among them approximately 44% conventional microfinance clients reside in Muslim countries. Almost one-half of the 56 IDB member countries in Asia and Africa are classed as United Nations Least Developed Countries (LDCs), so there is an immediate need to start Islamic Microfinance in Muslim Majority countries for financial inclusion.
