Project Description

Microfinance gibt Einlicke über ein damals entstehendes Vehikel für neue Investitionen.

Approaches and investment strategies that are committed to sustainability have been steadily growing in importance. They are increasingly understood amongst institutional as well as with private investors. In particular, microfinance as a financial investment category has experienced a real boom in recent years. The origins of microfinance lie in a philanthropic movement whose aim it was to provide credit aid to economically active people in poverty.

The volume of microfinance investing has grown very rapidly and produced a new market segment which provides micro-enterprises with access to financial services. In accordance with this rapid growth and the transformation of the sector, the market and its participants have become subject to significant structural changes. By assessing these and other microfinance trends, this book intends to provide an economic perspective of the entire market, its participants, opportunities and aspects of risk.
