'This book is a useful addition to the growing literature on this subject. The book is recommended to all those who would like to get a glimpse of microcredit as it functions in different settings' - The Financial Regulator
'This book is simple to read and understand, even though it deals with the complexities of microfinance, as well as the impacts of the historical, political, economic and social spheres in which microfinance programs operate. It analyzes a variety of topics...and the case studies allow anyone – whether new to microfinance or quite knowledgeable on the subject – to learn something new. This book provides food for thought and cues for further research! I would recommend it to development students, researchers, program managers, and to those interested in developing a critical understanding of microfinance.' - Kim Neverson, African Review of Economics and Finance
