Greenfield microfinance in Sub-Saharan Africa : a business model for advancing access to finance (English)

Sub-Saharan Africa has the lowest level of access to finance of any region in the world with an average banked population of only 24 percent. A business model for advancing access to finance examines the role the greenfield microfinance institution (MFI) business model plays in increasing access to finance in the African context. A good number of greenfield MFIs on the continent now have sufficient track record to enable an analysis of their performance and role in the market. A stocktaking of the experience can help inform decisions that will shape the coming generation of investment in microfinance. This issue of field notes from the partnership for financial inclusion summarizes the main premises, findings, and conclusions of the research paper.
