Action note: digitized 2010 committed to preserve In: World Bank e-LibraryReview: "Access for All: Building Inclusive Financial Systems outlines the "new" vision of microfinance, laying out in plain language what CGAP and others in the development field have learned over the past 10 years about building inclusive financial systems. Access for All is neither a technical handbook nor a chronicle of the history of microfinance. Instead, it pulls together disparate sources of information to describe where the microfinance field finds itself in 2006, as well as the opportunities and challenges ahead." "Access for All will enable readers to quickly grasp the practical implications of a fairly murky concept - inclusive financial systems - by making a cogent argument about what we know now, what we need to find out, and where further information can be found."Summary: "Beginning with key questions about clients of microfinance - Who are they? What financial services do they want? What is the impact of financial services on their lives? - the book examines all levels of the financial system. It shows what works, what does not work, and where more learning is needed. By focusing on promising models and practices, it offers a vision of how to achieve financial systems that will ultimately offer access for all."--Jacket.
