Little work has been done in the conjunction of Microfinance and Religion. This paper explores the findings of the extant research. It then provides future research directions on a number of subjects within this broad area, available for researchers from a large number of fields: anthropology, theology, sociology, representations and systems of thought, development economics, finance, and business management.
