Why micro lending businesses use a proposal tool instead of Microsoft Word
Many micro lending still use Microsoft Word or some other word processor to create their quotations. A previously created template is modified manually and then sent as a PDF. Sounds easy, but in practice this takes a lot of time, the chance of errors is high and you no longer have insight into your business proposal after sending.
With the use of a proposal tool it has become a lot easier and better for entrepreneurs. You still use templates as a basis, but now you have a full content library in which you can search and reuse texts. The chance of errors is minimal due to smart automation. And after sending you can still adjust your business proposal and you will get insight when your customer views the proposal. The modern interactive presentation options make an impression and the option to digitally sign makes it very easy for a customer to agree.
The following blog will elaborate on how to make perfect quotations with the right tool: Read more why Microsoft Word is not the best way to create proposals

Microfinance is the provision of financial services—small loans, savings accounts, or insurance—to those who lack access to conventional banking services. It began in the late 1960s with the establishment of small-scale credit programs designed to provide credit to poor people and alleviate poverty. These programs were targeted at self-employed women, especially in Asia and Latin America. The most successful of these programs included self-targeting features: for example, programs that provided training, information, and low-interest loans to people considered too poor to pay market interest rates. Since then, microfinance has spread around the world, covering most of the developing world and reaching into some developed countries. Microfinance has recently come under fire from many different angles, as it has begun to be blamed for perpetuating poverty rather than helping reduce it. Proponents argue that microfinance is an important financial inclusion tool for a large portion of the world's population that is not currently served by existing financial institutions. In September 2010, Bangladesh's Grameen Bank won the Nobel Peace Prize for its contribution to poverty alleviation through microcredit—an innovation that improved the lives of 100 million poor families. Critics of microcredit have questioned whether it is sustainable in its present form, particularly since many loans are made to individuals unable to afford them and may even worsen their situation.
