Accounting which is defined by the American institute of corporate as the act of recoding classifying and summarizing in a systematic manner and in terms of money transactions and events which are in part at least of a financial character and interpreting the results therefore.
In Microfinance  banking industry financial accounting primarily focuses on information for external use of by the investors shareholders depositors and supervisory agencies such as the national board for Microfinance  Banks and Central Banks of Nigeria.
The financial reports containing such information include the balance sheet and profit and loss accounts.  Management accounting on the other hand provides information required by management for the internal decision making an control. Management accounting provides information that will aid managers in carrying out the five basic duties viz.

The Microfinance  banks are not allowed to participate in the clearinghouse. Consequently this denies them a net of income and makes them unattractive to big time business magnets
