The purpose of this paper is to identify those broad behaviors and mental ideas that commonly underpin poor people's money management practices. A metaphorical image is associated with each of these behaviors and mental ideas in order to make them come to life more strongly. The aspiration is to depict them in a way that poor people themselves could understand and relate to.

Keywords: microfinance, access to finance, financial inclusion
