Abstract: The research aimed at finding out more about two variables, that is, Microfinance Credit and Performance of Medium and Small scale Businesses where the first objective of the study was to examine the types of credit that MFI' S extend to SMEs. In this circumstance the researcher established that MFI's basically have three types of credit, the consumption loan, short-term loans, long-term loans which all incorporate the poverty lending approach and the financial system approach. SME's performance is generally measured in terms of financial sustainability which is mainly achieved only when the returns on equity in SME's exceed the opportunity cost of the funds. Also quality of services access to financial services and savings mobilization measures performance. However, there is need for a proper implementation of credit management policies in order to ensure optimum utilization of credit to enhance better performance of SME's through credit. Generally, there is a significant relationship that exists between MFI credit and SME's performance which is mainly due to the sound MFI credit management policies that enhance better credit performance like, credit standard, credit terms, loan amount and collection procedures. Among the recommendation and suggestions made were; training of staff advising SME's owner and also recruiting credit expertise personnel for better credit management.
