About the book

Issues in Microfinance provides an insight into the essential elements of microfinance. The book examines microfinance schemes and initiatives in Nigeria, such as the indigenous savings and credit groups, non-profit credit schemes, co-operative financing, government and private sector interventions. It equally reviews the key provisions of the microfinance policy and regulatory framework.

The author relied on his several years of engagement in the sector to address central operational issues such as product development, risk and delinquency management, client relationship and performance indicators’ management.
