Microfinancing comprises financial and non-financial services which could possibly be a driving force to women entreprenuship and empowerment. However, the presence of microfinancing is though visible but there is lack of necessary investigation revealing the impact of microfinancing on entrepreneurial activities among women. Also, repayment problems pose threats of continuity to both microcredit institutions and entrepreneurs. A number of repayment strategies are in existence but there is lack of necessary investigation showing the influence of these repayment strategies on entrepreneurship growth among women. The focus of this study was to evaluate how Microfinancing has influenced entrepreneurship growth among women. This study adopted survey research design and convenience sampling technique. The study concluded that microfinancing has a significant impact on entreprenuship growth among women in Ogun State, Nigeria.
