Microfinance and Rural Development

Microfinance Development Gateway: "Rural areas are often forgotten by the financial institutions because of the difficulty to reach the clients and because of their extreme poverty. These documents focus on the great challenges of reaching rural areas by financial organisations or institutions. They explore the way products and services have to be adjusted, they explain the specific risks encountered in developing microfinance in rural zones. This collection of documents is based on various concrete cases that help to understand better the different issues related and the different approaches and strategies that can be implemented to reach the poorest rural people.

This week's Microfinance page highlight examines the development of Microfinance on the rural areas. This collection of papers provides a background to understand better the challenges and the risks linked with the development of microfinance in rural areas. We invite you to submit your resources and express your opinion on Microfinance and Rural Development.
