January Focus Topic: Microfinance

In January 2017, as part of our new focus on monthly themes, NextBillion dedicated special coverage to the challenges, debates and innovative approaches that are shaping the microfinance sector. The diverse posts below discuss new business, technology and policy approaches to making microfinance more effective, more accessible and more sustainable. (NOTE: The guest writers who participated in this series submitted their posts independently of one another, and do not necessarily endorse each other’s views.)
