@TheHubLA – Microfinance: To What Purpose?

from Hub LA


An engaged conversation regarding the development of an industry in flux.

The Microfinance industry has come under heavy scrutiny over the past couple years. This scrutiny can be construed as a positive situation, as it forces the industry to fix its problems. However, in what direction is the industry now moving? What is the rationale to justify this move? As an industry that is evolving before our very eyes, it is essential that we not only examine the different perspectives that exist within the industry, but understand them as well.
