Microfinance and Sida Goals: Should Sida Support Microfinance Funds?
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This Minor Field Study investigated the effects of a transformation from donor to commercial driven micro-finance from the three perspectives: outreach, sustainability and impact. Our purpose was to see if investments in microfinance funds are consistent with Sida’s goals and private sector policy. To study this we did a case study on Equity Building Society, an MFI with head office in Nairobi, Kenya. We selected EBS because of the fact that they recently had raised money from the microfinance fund AfriCap.
