9781565494381: New Pathways Out of Poverty

The current moment faced by the microfinance field reflects the opening lines from Charles Dickens A Tale of Two Cities: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness.... Never before has there been such inspiring innovation in microfinance nor such cause for concern. New Pathways out of Poverty provides a substantive discussion of the state of the field and a compelling vision for its future.

Third in a book series spanning a decade that has documented the microfinance industry s highs and lows, New Pathways Out of Poverty explores the current state of the microfinance industry and highlights some of the field s major challenges and achievements. Contributors examine innovations in microfinance and capture the knowledge gained in key areas of practice. The authors also show how leading institutions are taking steps to ensure that microfinance becomes a central platform for putting poverty in the museums where it belongs.

About the Author:

Anna Awimbo is Research Director of the Microcredit Summit Campaign. She has had several years of experience working on women s and youth issues to help identify alternative strategies for poverty alleviation. Her work has included tracking data to monitor the Microcredit Summit Campaign s progress towards its goal. She co-designed and is part of the Summit s team that coordinates trainings in Africa and Asia on the systematic integration of microcredit with education in child survival, HIV/AIDS prevention and reproductive health. Ms. Awimbo also serves on the Business Advisory Council of Five Talents International, an Anglican initiative to combat poverty through microenterprise development.

Sam Daley-Harris is president and founder of RESULTS Educational Fund, an international citizens' lobby dedicated to creating the political will to end hunger and poverty. RESULTS organized the February 1997 Microcredit Summit held in Washington, DC. The Summit seeks to reach 100 million of the world's poorest families, especially the women of those families, with credit for self-employment and other financial and business services by 2005. Mr. Daley-Harris is author of Reclaiming Our Democracy: Healing the Break Between People and Government and editor of Pathways Out of Poverty: Innovations in Microfinance for the Poorest Families, about which Muhammad Yunus said, "If we are serious about the Millennium Development Goal of reducing poverty by half by 2015, we ll have no other option but to establish credit as a human right. This book will help guide you to do it."

Review:

"As with most edited texts, this one tends to meander across a range of issues and institutional and national spaces without acheiving sharper focus, making it less useful for academic purposes. However, community development practitioners may find it a good primer on microfinance. Summing up: Recommended. Practioners and general readers."
