How is financial regulation different for micro-finance?
What is the role of financial regulation in the field of micro-finance? This paper identiles two features of micro-finance which call for unique treatment in policy considerations as compared to policy thinking in the mainstream body of financial law. These features are credit recovery and the credit risk of the MFI, when credit access is enabled through the structure of the joint liability group. The paper goes on to offer draft law which embeds a regulatory treatment of micro-finance that flows from this analysis.
