All the results are highly significant and due to micro credit the literacy rate of several families have increased and some were remained unchanged. On the basis of pair t-statistic we have rejected the null hypothesis (ho: lesser the role of micro credit, lesser would be the chances of poverty alleviation) and accepted the alternative hypothesis that (HI: higher the role of micro credit, greater would be the chances of poverty alleviation).  This paper concluded that the micro credit plays a very vital role in poverty alleviation and government and regulatory authority should try to increase the volumes of micro credit and subsidized the micro credit institutions to facilitate and enlarge the volume of credit.
