I am trying to research something on Google, but in vain. I am novice in Economics, hope I can get guidance. Can you tell me what is microeconomics? Is it microlending? I hear about microlending to women in rural Indian women to create folk art such as embriodered stoles. These women use their talent to support thier families. But how does the lender make profit? How much profit do the local artisans make and how much profit does the lender make?
