This paper explores issues and experiences in rural finance, focusing on its potential to alleviate poverty in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Consideration is given to the types of services demanded by the rural poor. Women have a special position in this because they are poorly served by existing services, despite their predominance among the poorest sectors of society, and the important role they play in the rural economy.
