Even though micofinance is recognized as an effective tool in alleviating poverty in many developing countries, the high interest rates charged by microfinance institutions is one of the most-discussed and criticized issues in microfinance. ZIMB is a truly unique and one of a kind mircofinance institution that disburses loans with zero interest. I am very much impressed with the work done by ZIMB to help the poor in the South East Asian countries.
