Abstract :

Microfinance is considered as a poverty alleviation strategy in most of the countries and especially in Asia. Among these various countries, Sri Lanka is offering microfinance services through private and public microfinance institutions to poor women for creating and developing micro enterprises. It has been identified through research that there are five components of these microfinance services (components) falling into financial and non-financial categories provided in Sri Lanka. Although, past research has focused on the socio economic, environmental and individual factors that have an impact on entrepreneurial success of women obtaining microfinance, profile of successful women entrepreneurs and the impact of each of these service components and their specific constituents, how these to be measured, and indicators for measuring these are not agreed upon
