This study employs interdisciplinary methods to make transnational feminist sense of the microfinance phenomenon. Drawing upon a combination of discourse approach, textual analysis, political economics and critical theory construction, I fused a feminist critical discourse approach to excavate microfinance from neoliberalism. I designed an economic justice framework and executed an in-depth study of Muhammad Yunus and Grameen Bank publications. Seeking to unveil inequalities of power that perpetuate economic injustice against women of color worldwide, I further conducted an analysis of the ontology of microfinance and neoliberalism itself, using the economic justice framework I designed as my analytical tool. I chart the promise of transnational feminist analysis to (re)configure oppressive structures into more just possibilities of our social world. Specifically, while other feminist scholars have begun to critique microfinance from various entry points, I (re)imagine microfinance as an element of an economics of promise. Acknowledging the structural dimensions that create poverty and applying that framework to our understandings of the practices of microcredit, I posit an economics of promise through which microfinance can be deployed strategically as a political act for economic justice.
