Tracing social business models in microfinance

A few days ago, Kaspar Wansleben, Executive director of the Luxembourg Microfinance and Development Fund engaged in a discussion on the evolution of the microfinance sector as a “poster-child” within an emerging social sector.

The event hosted at the Impactory provided participants with an overview of the evolution of microfinance business models from charity to billion dollar banks. The presentation was followed by a discussion where issues such as collection practices in Andrah Pradesh, interest rates and future challenges of the sector were adressed.
