Microfinance is a key intervention in helping poor families in developing countries move out of poverty. The Microcredit Summit Campaign has been working since 1997 to promote microfinance, with the aim of reaching 100 million of the world's poorest families by 2005. This book, published five years after the first Microcredit Summit, challenges conventional wisdoms and explores in depth the Campaign's core themes: reaching the poorest, reaching and empowering women, building financially self-sufficient institutions, and ensuring a positive measurable impact on the lives of clients and their families. The book will serve as a roadmap for development agencies working to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, including the goal of cutting absolute poverty in half by 2015.
