Microfinance Book Available Online – October 17, 2012

“Microfinance Investments: An investor’s guide to financing the growth and wealth creation of small enterprises and low income households in emerging economies,” written by Roland Dominicé, CEO of Symbiotics, is now available online for Syminvest.com registered account holders.

The book was published in March 2012. Due to the high demand throughout spring and summer, Symbiotics has decided to make the book available for free electronically. Hard copies can also be ordered directly from the company.

The book presents the two main arms of microfinance investments: microfinance institutions (MFIs) and microfinance investment funds (MIVs), describing in detail their respective markets, business models, risks, performance and impact. Several case studies are used to show concrete examples of successes and challenges in the industry. The book also reviews the evolution of the industry over time, from a narrower micro-credit story to a larger impact investing and sustainable finance narrative.
