Travail de recherche/Working paper
Résumé : This paper focuses on the use of donor funds to finance MFIs. The role of donors in microfinance is rapidly evolving, particularly since the emergence of socially responsible and commercial investors. We argue that public policy should be designed to facilitate the entry of new private actors without abandoning the markets that could not work without some public support. Through a separation of socially-responsible investors from fully commercial ones, we come up to an original classification of the different funding sources and the actors and their potential market in the sector.
