South Asian economic models for the Pacific? The case of microfinance

CollectionsPacific Economic Bulletin (1991-2010)
Title: South Asian economic models for the Pacific? The case of microfinance
Author(s): Gregory, Chris
Date published: 1999
Publisher: Asia Pacific Press
Description: 
The ‘microfinance evangelists’ tend to overlook the fact that the Grameen Bank system of microfinance is a solution to a problem that has its origins in the particular socio-cultural conditions of an Asian rice economy. While the general features of this form of village economy are found in many places throughout the world, the perspective of economic anthropology suggests that the particular socio-cultural conditions of the Pacific's root-crop based economy pose particular problems for microfinance development projects.
