  • 2. CENTRE OF ISLAMIC BANKING & ECONOMICS He further said that Islamic microfinance has more characteristics than conventional microfinance and for this important factor it has gained popularity internationally. In recent studies, it is evident that the impact of Islamic microfinance in poverty alleviation is far more than general microfinance. There are two prominent reasons of gaining the success. One is its focus on investing on the assets to boost up the income level and business opportunities that can be very impactful in elevating the living standards of the poor, to improve the business capacity, jobs availability, education and health opportunities. The other important element is the availability of Islamic microfinance to all the levels of the poor. However, for the poorest of the poor, the options of Zakat, Ushr, and donation and for the chronic poor, the options of Qard e Hassna is available. Otherwise, for the ordinary level of poverty, Murabaha, Musharaka, Mudarba, Ijara are available with the option of ‘Salam’ for the poor villagers that is connected with Islamic agriculture. On the other hand, when the poor people are elevated from the basic level of poverty, Micro Takaful is available to sustain them from going back to the down level. On the other hand, in general or conventional microfinance, there are unsuccessful efforts made for poverty alleviation from all levels of the poor through interest based microfinance. He added that the process of poverty alleviation is a scientific and complicated process. Unless the level of the poverty is measured, we cannot pick the right products to alleviate it. Due to this factor in conventional microfinance, it is hard to uphill the poor from his own level of poverty. He told that the purpose of this forum is to unite conventional microfinance and Islamic microfinance under one roof to chalk down the best strategy of poverty reduction from all over the world. There is no religion of poverty but Islamic microfinance is the best way forward to alleviate it from the masses. It is to be noted that this forum is organized from 01-04 November, 2014 with the joint association of international organizations i.e. IRTI- Islamic Development Bank, Azerbaijan Microfinance Association, Association of Microfinance of Tajikistan, Indonesia Microfinance Association, Centre of Microfinance Nepal, Metropolitan Training Academy Turkey, Awqaf South Africa, KFDWB and others.
