Microfinance in Northeast Thailand: Who Benefits & How Much?
Brett E. Coleman. Evaluates the outreach & impact of two microfinance “village bank” programs that target the poor in NE Thailand. Results indicate that participants tend to be significantly wealthier than non-participants, & the wealthiest villagers are almost twice as likely to participate in the program as the poorer villagers. Moreover, the wealthiest in the village often become program committee members & use their positions to borrow substantially more than rank & file members. Policy recommendations include: increased vigilance in targeting the poor, greater efforts to publicly disseminate the rules & purpose of the village bank program, & introduction & enforcement of eligibility criteria based on wealth while continuing to allow villagers to self-select.
