Title

Credit unions as channels of micro-credit lines: the Philippine case

Author

Lamberte, Mario B.

Description

After having had disappointing results from various specialized financial institutions as a means of providing subsidized credit programs to target groups, the Philippine government turned to informal financial institutions, such as credit unions. This report examines whether this new strategy has been effective in making credit available to sectors with no access to the formal banking system.
