Housing Microfinance: A Guide to Practice

Synopsis

• First book to link housing and microfinance

• Presents international and US experience

As the premier book to provide a comprehensive overview of housing microfinance worldwide, Housing Microfinance sets the standard for future work in the field. The expert contributors combine wisdom from the separate fields of housing policy and microfinance, demonstrating what each can learn from the other.

With solid guidance for practitioners and policymakers, the book reviews important issues for international and domestic microfinance institutions that are considering expanding into housing and for providers of conventional housing loans who seek to offer their services to poor clients who lack collateral or regular income.
