Village savings and loan associations : a practical guide by Hugh Allen( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Village Savings and Loan Associations (VSLAs) provide poor people in remote rural areas with a safe place to save small amounts, and in doing so to build up a fund from which small, flexible loans can be taken by the members. These independent associations operate in areas that standard microfinance programmes cannot reach due to high costs - and they have proved to work in more than 30 countries worldwide. They work without long-term technical support and injections of donor capital." "This manual offers a set of tools that will enable any organization, whether or not it has experience with microfinance, to establish and run successful VSLAs. It sets out a 1-year programme of VSLA formation, training and supervision including guidance on approaches to impact evaluation and the use of a simple MIS to analyse field officer and overall programme performance."--Jacket
