This course provides an overview of the microfinance industry: its origins, evolution, theoretical underpinnings, and empirical evidence. Through lectures and case studies, it focuses on both the practices of existing microfinance institutions and on the basic issues and policy debates in microfinance.

This course is structured in three parts. The discussion starts with the inter-relationships between risk, poverty and development in the presence of incomplete contingency markets. Great care is taken in this section to explain the various reasons for insurance and credit market failure (enforcement, imperfect information, etc.). Part two focuses on the role and scope of microfinance institutions in both developed and developing countries. It covers the best practices of successful organizations and confronts the theoretical issues that inform those practices (joint-liability lending, progressive lending, etc.). Case studies and analysis of microfinance experiences in different sectors and geographical areas fuel the discussion. Part three finally provides tools for evaluating interventions aimed at facilitating access to credit and insurance in differing economies. What is the real impact of existing credit schemes on poverty and income inequality in the long run? Are there alternative institutional arrangements for the provision of such loans and avenues for state intervention that are more effective in reaching the very poor households that have remained outside the clientele of most existing micro-credit programs? Answers to these questions are provided using the most recent contributions to the empirical literature.
