From the cover: “Many people concerned with development believe that the provision of adequate financial services (credit and savings) can contribute to the alleviation of poverty in both the developed and developing worlds. As the provision of financial services can generate revenue, donors place more emphasis on self-sufficiency to eventually remove the need for external funding.
This book examines the role of indigenous institutions in the provision of financial services, and analyses how one organisation, using creativity and sensitivity, mobilised these institutions for development needs. There are many lessons to be learned by all involved, particularly in relation to the drive for self-sufficiency promoted by donors. The insights provided are invaluable to those committed to providing financial services as part of development.”
