The Government of Nigeria identified microfinance as an effective tool in achieving the three objectives of (a) a strong and focused emphasis on economic growth (b) better access by the poor to social services and adequate infrastructure; and (c) targeted interventions to protect low-income populations or the most vulnerable, because it enables poor people to expand their businesses, increase their revenues, and augment employment, thereby contributing to the economic development of the country.
