Managing Risk and Creating Value with Microfinance brings
together the latest information on microfinance institutional
sustainability from leading international experts and microfinance
practitioners in four Latin American countries. Each chapter focuses
one topic: risk management; good governance; interest rates;
microinsurance; housing microfinance; microleasing; disaster
preparedness; or new technologies.
The papers in the book are the result of a series of meetings
financed by the United Kingdom’s Department for International
Development and supported by the World Bank’s Global Development
Learning Network. The Bank engaged practitioners in these four
countries in response to a movement in some South American governments
to impose policies and practices that would, in the long run, reduce
the microfinance institutions’ (MFIs’) sustainability. The
meetings were designed to strengthen MFIs by disseminating innovative
approaches in the above eight areas, promoting a South-South dialogue,
encouraging greater ties between these MFIs, and highlighting the
Bank’s ability to mobilize international experts and local
practitioners. The discussions took place between 2006 and 2008.
Managing Risk and Creating Value with Microfinance covers
risk management topics such as risk management systems, good
governance, interest rates, and microinsurance. The authors present
information on new product development and efficient delivery
methodologies including housing microfinance, microleasing, disaster
preparedness, and new technologies. A Web site (www.dgroups.org)
provided a forum for further discussion and knowledge sharing.
Managing Risk and Creating Value with Microfinance is
intended for MFI board members, managers, and staff, students and
professors of microfinance, and government regulators and
