Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2013 in the subject Sociology - Work, Profession, Education, Organisation, grade: A, , course: PhD, language: English, abstract: The poor, like others, too need financial products and services in order to build assets, manage consumption and mitigate risks. Microfinance, in recent times, has emerged as a powerful tool to provide access to some financial services to the poor. For decades, poverty alleviation has topped the International development agenda. United Nations Millennium Goals state that by 2015 the number of people living in extreme poverty should be half of what it was in 2000. Microfinance addresses the twin goals of financial inclusion and poverty alleviation in a way that builds self-esteem in the individual and self-sufficiency in the institution providing the financial services. Different models have emerged in microfinance delivery based on their clientele, focus area, interest rate, savings linkages, collateral, coverage and organizational/legal structure. With all the successes of the existing microfinance models, the herculean task of poverty alleviation still leaves enough space for innovative models. This study explores the potential of faith-based microfinance in complimenting the efforts of poverty alleviation and also overcoming the weaknesses in the existing models. Faith-based microfinance operate on distinct principles. The purpose of this study is to focus on the functioning of the faith based microfin...

Many development programmes in the developing world have today been redirected in the name of poverty alleviation. However, what these programmes lack is an efficient monitoring system to track progress from poverty alleviation interventions.This work establishes a customized baseline poverty profile that will serve as a reference point for monitoring Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRSP).This work is especially suitable for developing countries that have devolved decades of Central Administrative Controls to Local and District Councils. Over the years, monetary parameters were used to assess rural poverty.This work uses non-monitoring indicators grouped into demographic, basic needs, assets, means of livelihood, social services and empowerment structures to determine poverty status of the population in an effort to evaluate the impact of development initiative. The analysis of this work should help local and district council officers to address the central issues in their effort at poverty alleviation. This work is especially useful also to Development Practitioners, Professionals in development and Administrators interested in eradicating poverty in the developing world.

The major purpose of this study is to determine the extent of poverty and ascertain the causes and possible ways for poverty alleviation as perceived by the rural people. Poverty alleviation was measured by computing the change in food availability, sources of drinking water, physical assets, sanitation and increasing scope of income due to involvement in the Chars Livelihoods Programme (CLP).Field work for the study was carried out in Haldia union of Shaghata upazila under Gaibandha district of Bangladesh. Data was collected from January to February 2007 from a randomly selected sample of 102 CLP beneficiaries from a total of 148 through personal contact by using interview schedules, made by the researcher himself, which contained simple and direct questions with different scales. The paired "t" test was used to measure the comparative change of 'before' and 'after' involvement in CLP. Pearson product moment correlation co-efficient was computed in order to explore the relationship between the selected characteristics of the respondents and their poverty alleviation.

Biodiversity conservation and poverty alleviation are both important societal goals demanding increasing international attention. While they may seem to be unrelated, the international policy frameworks that guide action to address them make an explicit assumption that conserving biodiversity will help to tackle global poverty. Part of the Conservation Science and Practice Series published with the Zoological Society of London, this book explores the validity of that assumption. The book addresses a number of critical questions: Which aspects of biodiversity are of value to the poor? Does the relationship between biodiversity and poverty differ according to particular ecological conditions? How do different conservation interventions vary in their poverty impacts? How do distributional and institutional issues affect the poverty impacts of interventions? How do broader issues such as climate change and the global economic system affect the biodiversity – poverty relationship at different scales? This volume will be of interest to policy-makers, practitioners and researchers concerned with understanding the potential – and limitations – of integrated approaches to biodiversity conservation and poverty alleviation.

In Iran, although measures related to social security and protection of the poor and vulnerable rural people has a history of at least 40 years, but the achievements of the program in terms of reducing poverty and income vulnerability in rural areas of the country is not striking, thus the fundamental precondition for results in poverty reduction programs is performing systematic scientific studies to identify and analyze poverty.An important part of poverty and hunger live in rural areas, so we can say that success in poverty alleviation programs need to develop scientific studies of poverty in rural areas and constant effort to improve the quantity and quality of these studies

Among the poverty alleviation programmes that India has had so far, MNREGA deserves importance due to its impact to rural community in terms of income generation and poverty alleviation. One of the interesting features of the scheme has been the overwhelming participation of women. Moreover, it is also bestowed with multi-tier structure for the implementation and monitoring of the scheme with specified functions and duties of each authority. The agencies involved in the implementation of the programme are Central Employment Guarantee Council, District Programme Coordinator, Programme Officer appointed by the State Government and the Gram Panchayat. All these ensure better implementaion with an eye to checks and balances. Complete Decentralization and Active Participation are the watch-words of the Programme. Apart from enabling rural people with the power to demand work, it is also envisioned with complete transparency. All these provisions are not just unheard but also not expect-able with the myriad of other pro-rural programmes.

Microcredit operations began with the specific objective of poverty alleviation in Bangladesh. Poverty is widespread in Bangladesh. It is even more intense among the rural women of the country. Poverty situation improved with the expansion of microcrdit and rural women gained some empowerment as they had their own income through participation in the credit activities. But they are still far from achieving equal status with men because microcredit primarily addresses income poverty and it has inherent weaknesses in facilitating other conditions necessary for full empowerment of women. Not only are the inherent weaknesses, the socio-economic environment of rural Bangladesh, where microcredit functions, is also a big impediment to achieving women empowerment. Therefore, a comprehensive approach, which includes microcredit too, is necessary for further empowering the rural women of Bangladesh. This approach includes social mobilization, awareness-building, regulations enhancing, equitable financial practices and government initiatives.

Academic Paper from the year 2014 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Development Politics, Aalborg University, language: English, abstract: Institutions, both the physical and the non-physical, guide the way in which we live. The framework that these institutions create defines the direction of not only individual lives but also that of society. Changes within the framework and/or the institutions can lead to changes in the way in which we view the world. Currently, the world is battling towards reducing poverty. Poverty is an issue that effects society as a whole and thus a thorough approach must be used to alleviate this issue. This is because poverty is a highly diverse phenomena. Within poverty, urban poverty is becoming an increasingly important issue to attempt to solve, because of the growing urbanisation which is occurring across the globe. This urbanisation will place further pressure not only on the environment but also the urban infrastructure and institutions. Therefore this project will look to understand what sort of changes are needed in order to further reduce poverty in an urban setting by exploring the case of urban Bangladesh.

The Ready Made Garments (RMG) sector emerged as an important economic sector of Bangladesh from early 1980s. The importance of RMG sector for the national economy of Bangladesh can hardly be overemphasized.

The progressive understanding of poverty include not only economic and material conditions, but also a lack of power, freedom and resources to decide and shape one's own life. Social and legal norms and economic structures based around sexuality have a tangible impact on people's physical security, bodily integrity, health, education, mobility and economic status. The expressions for the interwoven relation of poverty and sexuality are many. Many people with 'deviant' sexuality are subject to economic discrimination, leading to marginalization that has effect of reducing their livelihood opportunities. In this Publication the links between women's sexual rights and poverty in the African context is explored . It illustrates how the lack of protection and recognition of women's sexual rights as understood in the African context can be the cause and consequences of poverty. The publication provides arguments as to how addressing sexual rights of women in poverty alleviation programmes can contribute to the realization of meaningful development for the African women and a way forward as to how the issue of Sexual Rights and poverty can be fostered.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,0, Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg, language: English, abstract: Helping less developed countries close the gap to industrialized countries is the goal of a decades long struggle by various institutions likes the IMF, World Bank and NGOs. The various approaches that exist highly differ in the level of society they address. This paper scales the different development measures from top-down to bottom-up - whereas Structural Adjustment Policies (SAP) employed by the IMF are counted as the former and Unconditional Cash Transfers mark the lower end of the scale - to check their respective effectiveness in promoting growth and lasting development. In between the extremes of the scales, light is shed on the Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (PRSPs) of the IMF, the approach to have the people in need participate in the disbursement of aid (Participation), as well as the usefulness of the Conditional Cash Transfers.Through the absence of substantial savings, poverty prevents the accumulation of capital and the needed investment for productivity growth. By failing to attract investment, Participation is found to do little to break this vicious circle and lift the least developed countries out of the poverty trap. SAPs embodied the right idea but were to rigorous and paying to little attention to the local conditions present. PRSPs seem a well-working success...

Community participation in education is a complex issue. It is heterogeneous in nature because it differs from context to context. The process of participation is fraught with various challenges and issues due to its diverse nature. However, despite of all this, concept of community participation has become a catchy word in the present day. Researchers and educationists have found it to be one of the major factors in determining and defining the quality of education. Parents in the present century are becoming increasingly aware of the need to participate actively in children’s their education. The process of community participation in education is based on the presumption that education is a shared responsibility. It is an activity in collaboration rather an activity in isolation. The need of partnership between schools, families and communities is the key to improve educational practices and services.

The MDGs comprise eight global objectives, one of them "The eradication of worldwide poverty", which is being measured by a set of economic indicators in order to derive respective strategies for halving destitution between 1990 and 2015. In the course of this work the success and shortfall of the implemented strategies will be analyzed for Sub - Saharan Africa, the region where the greatest share of the world´s poor reside. Furthermore, the chances and deficits that global development agenda such as the MDGs exhibit will be taken into deeper consideration highlighting the needs of the development assistance of the years to come. Ultimately, the future efforts of international institutions, governments and nongovernmental organizations with reference to poverty alleviation will be outlined and evaluated as far as Mr. Kim´s statement of ending poverty within a generation can be realized.

Poverty is persistent in Caribbean countries like Jamaica, manifesting itself in hunger and malnutrition, substandard housing, high rates of teenage pregnancy, poor educational outcomes, and appalling levels of crime and violence. Tackling Poverty with Social Funds explores a strategy that engages citizens in small-scale projects designed to address public poverty issues, improve community living standards, and enhance the quality of life. The book focuses in part on citizen participation and social capital, analyzing the extent to which a social fund prepares a community to meet its own needs and solve its own problems. Marked by a rich, detailed description of stakeholder involvement in community-driven development, the book offers interesting insights into the character of civic and social life in local communities. It makes a com­pelling case for an integrated approach to development based on partnerships among the state, private sector, and civil society. This book should be of special interest to social development planners and practitioners, as well as researchers in the social welfare and community development fields.

With the launching of the United Nations (UN) Decade for Women (1975 - 1985) discussions about the importance of integrating women into the formal economy began to attract worldwide attention. Henceforth, various development theories emerged, which all aim at increasing women's access to income in order to alleviate poverty, foster national development and economic growth and target gender equality. Although emphases of the theories shifted, nomenclatures changed and criticism grew over the years, the underlying assumption and prevailing consent remained the same: female empowerment through economic participation. This book confronts such theoretical assumption with empirical knowledge obtained in the course of 23 interviews conducted with self-employed Igbo business women in Enugu (Nigeria). The underlying hypothesis is that the interviewees' economic participation is rather a temporal survival strategy based on the challenging economic conditions than a deliberately chosen means to female empowerment.

Master's Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Sociology - Individual, Groups, Society, grade: Excellent, , course: MSc. in Development Economics, language: English, abstract: In developing countries like Ethiopia, our day-to-day formal and informal discourses are rarely out of poverty issues that can be linked directly or indirectly. Despite the determined effort of government and development agencies to reduce poverty and ensure sustainable development, poverty remains an everlasting challenge of the world. This study aims to examine rural household poverty and its determining factors using alternative poverty measurement approaches, in case of Gozamin Woreda, East Gojjam Zone of Amhara Region. It used both objective and subjective based poverty analysis approaches, where the survey based analysis and PPA of the study depend on randomly selected 242 and 42 sample households respectively. Using cost of basic needs approach (CBN), the poverty line of the study area is estimated as 19.16 Birr per day per adult equivalent. The study engaged Foster, Greer and Thorbecke (FGT) group of poverty measures to assess the incidence, depth and intensity of poverty and decompositions were made across sample Kebeles and socio-economic variables. OLS, logit and censored (Tobit) regression models were also applied to identify determining factors of household consumption expenditure, poverty incidence, depth and severity. PPA findings revealed that, perception of the community towards ...

Scientific Study from the year 2017 in the subject Sociology - Miscellaneous, , language: English, abstract: Sri Lanka's alcohol production and consumption have grown rapidly and more than 75 percent of the government's revenue, from alcohol taxes and levies, comes from arrack production. Hard liquor consumption is relatively high in Sri Lanka compared with the global trend, as well. Illegal alcohol (mainly known as Kasippu) consumption in Sri Lanka is popular among people because it is cheaper. In the second half of this paper, various definitions on poverty and its measurements are briefly discussed in order to emphasise that the term 'poverty' is not merely a lack of income, and to broaden the term's connotations. This chapter also serves to highlight the fact that poverty is a complex phenomenon with various social, health and economical influences. Following a survey of definitions of poverty and description of poverty measurements, this chapter provides an overview of global trends in poverty and poverty in Sri Lanka. Although the aggregate poverty rates declined in the world, the number of poor people has increased in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa continents. Compared to the other South Asian countries Sri Lanka has had better living conditions. There is a declining trend in poverty in Sri Lanka. However, the income inequality has grown in Sri Lanka in recent years as it has been in the South Asian region.

Worldwide child and youth poverty and deprivation remain the biggest barrier to achieving a better life in adulthood. Progress in lifting children out of poverty in the last decades has been slow and limited in the developing world, while the recent global economic crisis has exacerbated child poverty, youth unemployment, and social exclusion in many developed countries. By critically unraveling the long-term consequences of growing up poor, the close linkages between multiple deprivations and violation of human rights in childhood and adolescence, and their effects on labor market entry and future career in a number of developing and developed countries, this book significantly enriches the existing literature. Drawing on multiple disciplinary perspectives, it makes a forceful case for the eradication of child poverty to take center stage in the Sustainable Development Goals.

Project Report from the year 2008 in the subject Forestry / Forestry Economics, , course: Human Ecology, 38 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Food insecurity and poverty are the greatest global challenges facing the world today. Their redress is an indispensable requirement for sustainable development in developing countries, particularly in Africa. Poverty continues to be pervasive, intractable and inexcusable in the developing world particularly Sub-Saharan Africa. Extreme poverty ravages the lives of one in every four in the developing world (i.e. 1.2 billion people). The farming of non-timber forest products (NTFPs) is being promoted as a potential solution to the current high rates of malnutrition and poor health of the rural population, the degradation of tropical forests and the spread and intensification of poverty. However, the role of NTFPs in rural development in Ghana remains largely undervalued and understudied. This paper examines the contribution of NTFPs farming in enhancing poverty reduction, food security, sustainable forest management, and livelihoods improvement in the Sefwi Wiawso District (SWD) of the Western Region of Ghana. An exhaustive literature review and analysis of field data collected through administration of questionnaires, interviews and stakeholder consultations indicate that NTFPs are an important tool for addressing poverty amongst marginalised, forest-dependant communities in Ghana. 86% of farmers in SWD depend on ...

Participation of stakeholders at the local level (local participation) is evolving worldwide as a mechanism to address complex environmental problems such as lagoon resource management. This book examines how local authorities and civil society have responded to lagoon resource policy implementation challenges by introducing participation and empowerment as a tool to solve the problem. The book further examines how lack of participation of relevant stakeholders in policy formulation on the 'commons'undermines the policy implementation phase. In theory, participation holds promise to address conflict, however in practice, a number of factors that feed into conflict sometimes characterize the process of participation in many local communities. It is a potential contradiction that although stakeholders' involvement in decision-making is proposed as an approach to manage conflict, in practice the process usually reveals tensions inherent in the collision of diverse interests among stakeholders. These tensions could emanate from historical antecedents, ineffective information flow in the community, and low-levels of communication.

A comprehensive guide to implementing SAE methods for poverty studies and poverty mapping There is an increasingly urgent demand for poverty and living conditions data, in relation to local areas and/or subpopulations. Policy makers and stakeholders need indicators and maps of poverty and living conditions in order to formulate and implement policies, (re)distribute resources, and measure the effect of local policy actions. Small Area Estimation (SAE) plays a crucial role in producing statistically sound estimates for poverty mapping. This book offers a comprehensive source of information regarding the use of SAE methods adapted to these distinctive features of poverty data derived from surveys and administrative archives. The book covers the definition of poverty indicators, data collection and integration methods, the impact of sampling design, weighting and variance estimation, the issue of SAE modelling and robustness, the spatio-temporal modelling of poverty, and the SAE of the distribution function of income and inequalities. Examples of data analyses and applications are provided, and the book is supported by a website describing scripts written in SAS or R software, which accompany the majority of the presented methods. Key features: Presents a comprehensive review of SAE methods for poverty mapping Demonstrates the applications of SAE methods using real-life case studies Offers guidance on the use of routines and choice of websites from which to download them Analysis of Poverty Data by Small Area Estimation offers an introduction to advanced techniques from both a practical and a methodological perspective, and will prove an invaluable resource for researchers actively engaged in organizing, managing and conducting studies on poverty.

In terms of poverty gap, the highest value (i.e.0.472) was obtained in Subsistence Agriculture (SA) livelihoods strategy followed by Subsistence Agriculture combined with Off-farm (SAO) livelihoods strategy. Contrary to this, Semi-commercial Agriculture strategy and Semi-commercial agriculture combined with Off-farm activity (SCAO) found to have relatively low poverty gap value i.e. 0.206 and 0.198 respectively, the latter being the least of all. From this we can understand that the average consumption short fall needed to bring those households below poverty line in SCA and SCAO is 20.6% and 19.8% respectively. Whereas, the average amount of consumption necessary to fill the shortfall of the poor from the poverty line is 47.2% and 46.8% in Subsistence Agriculture and Subsistence Agriculture combined with Off-farm livelihoods strategy, respectively

This book discusses the linkages between renewable energy, poverty alleviation, sustainable development,investment opportunities and climate change in the Gambia. My discussion includes types of renewable energy technology, special emphasis is placed on biomass-based energy systems. Biomass energy has a number of unique attributes that make it particularly suitable to climate change mitigation and community development applications. In the Gambia, the lack of access to convenient and efficient energy services is a major barrier to achieving meaningful and long-lasting solutions to poverty. Nevertheless, when poor people and communities obtain access to convenient and efficient energy services, one major barrier to poverty reduction can be lowered or removed.By promoting biomass energy to provide clean and efficient “modern” energy services in the form of solid, liquid, and gaseous fuels as well as electricity, the government can address many of the negative aspects of small-scale household and commercial biomass consumption. This can help developing countries diversify their resources for low-carbon energy production.

Master's Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Development Politics, grade: 60-70%, University of Manchester (Institute of Development Politics and Management (IDPM)), course: Development Management, language: English, abstract: The dissertation critically discusses the partnership between local governments and 'Southern' NGOs (meaning local NGOs in developing countries), specifically looking at the effects that a close cooperation can have on the poor. Through the analysis of the key literature and selected case studies the argument is developed that fostering a certain type of partnership under favourable conditions may contribute to poverty reduction efforts in a local context. The paper examines the interaction between the two actors in the decision-making and implementation process of public policies, mainly drawing on the concept of good local governance. Here, ideas of decentralisation and civil society play an important role and nowadays often constitute an integral part of poverty reduction programmes in developing countries. The first chapter of the dissertation focuses on this linkage between local governance (including NGO participation) and improvements in public policy outcomes for local communities. Subsequently, different types of partnership between local governments and NGOs are presented and the assumed ideal-type for poverty reduction is pointed out.

Participation which has become a famous orthodoxy in recent years among development agencies is the subject of this research on stakeholders in the water sector in Zimbabwe. Focus is on the participation of rural community members in smallholder formal and informal irrigation activities in their locale, and their representation in the sub-catchment and catchment levels respectively. A framework of analysis was constructed using evidence from the study to help us understand what shapes the participation of community members in irrigation WUAs in a selected small catchment of the larger Mzingwane catchment in southwest Zimbabwe. The study recommends the adoption of the micro-catchment level as the lowest tier for integrated water management, a union for smallholder irrigation WUAs and the provision of technology to leverage the participation of more community members in productive water use. Besides, to improve the framework analytical power, its review to include the role of politics and the wider notion of representational democracy is also recommended.

The book explores the linkage between World Bank loan conditionalities and politics of poverty reduction in Africa. Several decades of grappling with World Bank loan conditionalities and poverty reduction strategies have, at best, yielded meager returns as poverty and underdevelopment persist. Thus,it investigated the implementation of World Bank loan conditionalities and their impact on social welfare in Nigeria. Specifically, the book is a scholarly contribution to unmask the tenuous link between loan conditionalities and politics of poverty reduction strategies in Nigeria. Fundamentally, it is divided in to six major chapters. The first chapter which is the introduction examines the methodological rigour and elegance of the study. Chapter two x-rays privatization of public enterprises; the third chapter interrogates Government funding of social welfare. In addition, chapter four explores the World Bank loan development assistance in relation to human capacity development in Nigeria; while the summary, conclusion and recommendation were in chapter five. The book is an invaluable asset in understanding while abject poverty persist in Nigeria, and Africa at large.

The Government of Kenya has over the recent five years been running Business Plan Competitions. These initiatives have been aimed at identifying growth oriented and innovative business ideas that can be nurtured into viable and sustainable enterprises. The initiatives dubbed Jitihada and Chora Bizna have been marked by poor participation by the targeted MSMEs. Since participation is key to success of such interventions, the researcher was prompted to investigate the factors influencing the participation of MSMEs in these initiatives in Nyeri Municipality. This study is based on Vrooms (1964) expectancy theory that states that work effort by individuals is dependent on the outcomes that they expected. It is also based on Leon Feistinger's theory of cognitive dissonance that suggested that attitudes shape people's behavior, action and judgment.

A significant proportion of the rural population in the developing countries still lack access to formal credits. Even in those areas where formal credit sources do exist, the poor lacking collateral suitable assets are considered risky borrowers and excluded from the services. Women in rural areas of developing countries are further marginalized in any sort of involvements in economic activities. In this context, microfinance has come up as a tool to help deprived groups and small entrepreneurs in generating self-employment opportunities to reduce poverty by launching target credit programs. Providing sustained assistance to women in the field of microenterprises and microfinance is a key factor to facilitate their upliftment and empowerment. In enterprise finance, women have already been accepted as a good saver and investor, as good as or better than men. This study contributes to understand the role of microfinance in promoting entrepreneurial activities among rural women for their empowerment in economic decisions. This research is relevant for development workers, microfinance institutions and policy makers to improve rural credit services targeting women.

The main focus of this book is to examine married women's participation in the labour force in the state of Perak, in Malaysia. It starts with an overview of married women's participation in the labour force in Malaysia. Extensive data have been obtained from the married women. The results revealed that married women in the labour are facing challenges to balance responsibility between work and family. The biggest challenges they are facing in labour force with respect to child-bearing and child-rearing. Some women desire to leave their jobs willingly and return to family because of childbearing and other responsibilities. Conversely, they are concerned about their economic contribution to their families. Women's participation in the labor force has the significant impact on the overall development of the country. By giving the importance and demands of women's participation in the labour force, the book suggests the implication of family friendly policy and its' appropriate practice with respect to flexible time work arrangements that may provide to support to women as well as to increase their participation in the labour force.

There is debate on whether protected areas help in poverty alleviation or are instead poverty traps. In this study, the impact of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in south-western Uganda on local incomes and livelihoods is assessed. The study also seeks local perceptions on collaborative natural resource management scheme. Data was collected from a stratified random sample based on proximity to the park boundary. Proximity to the park negatively affected access to social services. Dependence on park income was not influenced by proximity but by membership to a resource user group. Dependence on park income had a negative effect on total household income and due to the small allowable quotas to park resources. Park income had a small income equalising effect. There were concerns over park related damage of crops and failure for compensation by park management. As a result it is concluded that BINP has enormous potential to benefit local people but real local benefits remain a distant reality yet the costs associated with the existence of the park are having a heavy toll on local people.

An overwhelming majority of the world's poor live in the third world countries. Various approaches have been employed in alleviating poverty of which provision of credit that targets the poor is one. Despite the current enthusiasms in applying the concept of microfinance as a poverty alleviation tool in many countries, the risk management aspects of micro-financing should not be overlooked. This paper highlights several incidences of default risks in microfinance industry. The problem identified was that microfinance programs perform scantily because of delay in repayment and high default rates. Default problems destroy lending capacity as the flow of repayment declines, transforming lenders into welfare agencies, instead of a viable financial institution. It incorrectly penalizes creditworthy borrowers whenever the screening mechanism is not efficient. Credit default may also deny new applicants access to credit as the bank's cash flow management problems augment in direct proportion to the increasing default problem.Because credit risk is one of the most significant risks from a microfinance perspective.
