Chapter 8 in Microfinance in Developing Countries, 2013, pp 152-177 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract The microfinance sector is used to extensive debates about its mission.2 However, in one regard, the goal has always been clear: microfinance, whether or not it was impact focused and poverty focused, has always been about extending small-scale financial services to the underbanked. The aim has been to reach those who are not normally served by the formal financial system.
