Abstract

[From Preface] This paper forms Chapter 7 and investigates microfinance and the impact of information and communication technologies (ICTs) on social inclusion. Having examined the literature and secondary sources, Dr. Ana Marr and Dr. Lin Yan create a framework for ICT and its impact on microfinance in developing countries. The framework highlights how the capability generation is interlinked with social inclusion, microfinance, and the use of ICT. They categorize this framework in an effort to contribute to the existing body of work, as “people’s capability building at the heart of the impact chain” for microfinance in developing countries.
