This book was written at the request of practitioners and donor agencies and draws on research and practical experience in Bangladesh, Philippines and East Africa. It outlines the cutting edge issues of: * Poverty reduction and outreach, * Empowerment of women and poorer clients to enhance their status, * Improving the health and nutrition of the poor. The book addresses the role of savings and savings mobilisation in micro-finance with its implications for clients, institutions and the regulatory authorities. These are joined to examples of how to recruit, develop and maintain high quality clients, and wider issues of the replication of successful micro-finance systems. An approach based on * First looking at what poor people do for themselves * Second by designing products and delivery systems that help them do it even better * Incorporating the best of formal and informal microfinance practices * Providing clear examples of how to design micro-finance systems that deliver quality financial services to the poor The book concludes with practical examples from two case studies that detail how two very different systems were developed
