About the product

The Asia Pacific region holds two thirds of the world’s poor. Over the past few decades the region has seen the development of microfinance institutions which offer a wide variety of financial services for the poor. In an effort to enhance their outreach and positive impact on the poor, this volume attempts to discuss the issues associated with integrating microfinance programmes for poverty reduction into the formal financial sector.
