Abstract

It is broadly acknowledged that micro-credit origin is related to Grameen Bank in Bangladesh. However, there are early experiences in previous centuries that resemble micro-credit, both in developing and developed countries, Spain included. The paper revises those experiences, their similarities and differences with current micro-credit schemes. It also draws some lessons from the past that can be specially put into practice in the current Spanish micro-credit model.
