Book News Annotation:

Written by an international group of contributors who specialize in microfinance, this collection of 18 chapters is divided into sections on online financing; technical, regional and sectoral issues; mobile banking; and information technology, with an introduction preceding each section that describes these applications in microfinance. Among the individual topics are a case study of Mifos implementation in Asomi, India; a study of the use of M-PESA, an online financial diary, in Kenya; the role of credit scoring in micro lending; and using the model of web portal successes in cell phone development for developing new social and hygienic behaviors in order to ensure success with latrine installation. Each chapter includes an introduction and discussion of the background to the issue, an overview of the technology, and detailed descriptions of applications based on actual cases, making this an excellent resource for both specialists and novices to the field.
