An Innovative approach to rural lending: Financiera Calpia in El Salvador
Navajas, Sergio; Gonzalez-Vega, Claudio
Because of the difficulties of rural lending, it is unusual to find formal organizations that offer financial services in rural areas, and it is important to understand the performance of the few microfinance organizations that have successfully reached rural areas. This paper describes the lending technology of Financiera Calpia, one such successful organization.
