In its new and developing role as a “knowledge bank,” the World Bank can offer its clients much more than new financing (loans, guarantees or grants). It can also offer access to recent developments in international best practices, provide new knowledge sharing opportunities and facilitate the exchange of new ideas in a variety of fields. It can also use this new capacity to help local institutions address strategic and operational challenges. To that end, this book brings together the results of an eight-part series of presentations by leading experts and microfinance practitioners on issues related to microfinance institutional sustainability. It is intended for microfinance institution board members, managers, and staff, and government regulators and supervisors. Topics in risk management include risk management systems, good governance, interest rates, and microinsurance. Topics in new product development and efficient delivery methodologies include housing microfinance, microleasing, disaster preparedness, and new technologies.
