    The Triangle of Microfinance: Financial Sustainability, Outreach, and Impact

    Since the 1980s when the microfinance revolution began, much has been accomplished, but the field became more refined in the 1990s as a result of shifts in paradigms, strategies, and development practices. This volume addresses the three policy objectives that now occupy those who wish to use credit as a development tool: financial sustainability of microfinance institutions, outreach to the poor, and welfare impact. Inevitable tradeoffs exist among these objectives, and the book advances an analytical framework that assists students of and experts in microfinance to identify the tradeoffs and synergies at the institutional level and in the policy environment. The book features a wealth of empirical data and innovative analytical studies, and critically discusses the role of public support for microfinance institutions (MFIs) in light of the social costs and benefits generated by such financial systems. The book is organized into five parts. The first discusses the demand for...

      Description: The revolution occurring in finance for low-income people refers to commercial microfinance?the delivery of financial services to the economically active poor on a large scale through competing, financially self-sufficient institutions. Lessons from Indonesia, volume 2 of The Microfinance Revolution, examines in the Indonesian context the principles and practices of commercial microfinance that were explored and analyzed in volume 1.

      Description: Around the world, a revolution is occurring in finance for low-income people. The microfinance revolution is delivering financial services to the economically active poor on a large scale through competing, financially self-sufficient institutions. In a few countries this has already happened; in others it is under way. The emerging microfinance industry has profound implications for social and economic development. For the first time in history, capital is well on its way to being democratized. The Microfinance Revolution is aimed at a diverse readership--economists, bankers, policymakers, donors, and social scientists; microfinance practitioners and specialists in local finance and rural and urban development; and members of the general public interested in development. The first volume of what will be a three-volume series, this book focuses on the shift from government- and donor-subsidized credit systems to self-sufficient microfinance institutions providing

      Description: Managing Risk and Creating Value with Microfinance brings together the latest information on microfinance institutional sustainability from leading international experts and microfinance practitioners in four Latin American countries. Each chapter focuses one topic: risk management; good governance; interest rates; microinsurance; housing microfinance; microleasing; disaster preparedness; or new technologies. The papers in the book are the result of a series of meetings financed by the United Kingdom s Department for International Development and supported by the World Bank s Global Development Learning Network. The Bank engaged practitioners in these four countries in response to a movement in some South American governments to impose policies and practices that would, in the long run, reduce the microfinance institutions (MFIs ) sustainability. The meetings were designed to strengthen MFIs by disseminating innovative approaches in the above eight areas, promoting a
