Micro-organisms are cells, enzymes are proteins.

Enzymes enable metabolic reactions to occur in all living organisms.

Microorganisms are living things, they carry out all of the life processes. Enzymes are simply proteins.

As noted above, micro-organisms are small living beings that can be seen only under the microscope. They have the basic ability of life i.e. the ability to reproduce. Enzymes, on the other hand, are biological molecules: they are non-living complex proteins. I guess you know what chemical reactions are, and that they occur in our body too. Enzymes simply speed up those chemical reactions.

One more way to say it that micro-organisms have enzymes inside them. Enzymes just make up part of every organisms that we have here.

I hope this helps
