Abstract

The Banque de France organised a symposium on microfinance in July 2011. Based on the experience of Southern countries, the participants stressed the usefulness of microfinance as an instrument for financial inclusion, economic development and poverty reduction. They proposed several avenues for financing its development and discussed ways to regulate it and their relevance.
