Microfinance in the Pacific Island countries
McGuire, Paul B.
This report provides an assessment of microfinance in nine Pacific Island countries, with more detailed case studies of five major microfinance programs in the region. There has been an increase in the number of microfinance programs in the region in recent years. Most have been unsuccessful, with limited outreach, or are at a very early stage of development. The report examines the performance, capacity, and viability of these programs, and suggests strategies for improving them.
