Islamic Micro – finance (IMFc) is an evolving technique to empower the deprived and needy population. The present study was intended to investigate the effect of the IMFc on the resources of individuals borrowing from an Islamic microfinance institution and their poverty status. The prime intention of this paper is to justify the effect of IFMc for poverty alleviation. The study reveals that IMFc programs have introduced a positive result on significant numbers of poor. Islamic microfinance has significant impacts on income, savings and expenditure levels of the household. The analysis shows that in general, the Islamic micro finance is an instrument that can help to accumulate savings and income and finally assist to alleviate their poverty. But still it is not only the instrument that can alleviate poverty but it is the vital component that can help to the poor people for standard living levels. Our analysis shows that after taking Islamic finance there is a significant change in the respondents’ income savings and expenditures.
