The State of the Microcredit Summit Campaign report 2009 discusses the human face of global poverty, reviews microfinance breakthroughs in helping slum dwellers move out of the slums, and highlights the innovation of bringing renewable energy to some of the poorest communities in the world. These issues will be part of a larger discussion focused on how microfinance can serve as a platform for other services.
The report also looks at renewed calls for embracing commercialization and a new initiative to bring truth-in-lending to interest rate pricing. The report outlines the need for the World Bank to increase its outreach to the very poor with microfinance, reviews the Campaign’s work to measure progress above the US$1 a day threshold, and takes a deeper look at 2007 data.
Finally, the report looks at the effects of the financial crisis and fluctuating food and fuel prices on MFIs and their clients, the Campaign’s work on integrating microfinance with health education, and discusses the recent and upcoming Summits.
