Abstract:

"Expanding the Frontier in Rural Finance presents 12 examples from around the world of banks and informal institutions forging linkages to reach rural customers. Can the financial resources and the rigour of banking systems be combined productively with the local knowledge and low costs of microfinance institutions, credit unions and self-help groups? Have the terms and conditions of linkage banking services improved? Can customers gain access to a wider range of services, such as insurance and money transfer? Are more customers reached? This book shows that linkages can expand outreach, but making this work in practice is not straightforward. Essential reading for bankers and microfinance professionals, policy makers and donors working to improve rural finance."--Jacket.
