The study focuses on the "wholesale" market through which microfinance institutions operating in these three countries obtain loans from a variety of domestic and international funding bodies. Economic and network analysis tools are employed to understand the nature and characteristics of the relationships between them; emphasis is placed on how the features of partnerships relate to the social and financial aspects of microfinance, on possible tensions that may arise, and ways to reconcile them.

Item Type: Conference or Conference Paper (Paper)
Additional Information: [1] This paper was a special session of the International Microfinance Leverhulme Research [2] The University of Greenwich has received over £200,000 in funding from the Leverhulme Trust to carry out a three-year research project on partnerships in microfinance. Economic methods and social network analysis are used to map collaboration partnerships of microfinance institutions with various stakeholders, so as to understand their role in achieving the dual goals of poverty alleviation and financial sustainability. By so doing, the project aims to identify new ways to improve access to financial services in the developing world. The project team works in close partnership with three microfinance institutions, namely Financiera Edyficar (Peru), PRIDE (Tanzania) and BWDA (India). Representatives of the three organisations were invited to present their own view of, and experience with, global and local partnerships. In addition Ana Marr, Principal Investigator and Project Director, and Paola Tubaro, researcher, presented the paper on "Global Financial Partnerships in India, Peru and Tanzania."
