The different methodologies were deployed, including interviewing micro credit clients through questionnaire and interviewing management team in order to generate and acquire necessary information. Descriptive statistics and Microsoft excel which involves frequencies and simple percentage graphical charts and illustrations were tactically applied in data presentations and analysis. The findings of the study reveals that significant number of the SMEs benefitted from the MFIs loans in both economic and social- well-being of individual clients, even though only a few of them were capable enough to secure the required amount needed.
