The unit is concerned with the role of microfinance in achieving financial inclusion for the world's poor. The unit critically analyses the legal and policy issues relevant to efforts to alleviate poverty through the provision of formal financial services, in the form of microfinance, to the poor. Microfinance will be examined from the perspectives of Governments, international financial organisations, financial institutions, borrowers and country case studies. We will debate and assess appropriate policy responses to the fundamental legal issues that exist in this context.
