Micro-finance banks are not just there for you to save money and get awesome returns and rates on them but they can also be a very good source of raising your start-up capital. They make sure that the small and medium scale businesses get the attention that they so desire from the bigger banks.
Most of these banks have plans that would suit your every need and their repayment plans (the month, the installments and the interest rates) would always be considerate and put your kind of business in mind first. With the micro-finance banks, you need not worry about start-up capital again. Below is a rundown of the ten top micro-finance banks that you can take your money worries to and walk out with a smile… and a bag of money too.
