Project Developing Countries Group

Micro credit. One of the so-called buzzwords of the last few years. However, little is it realised that this concept has been around since at least 1974, when it was first introduced by a Chittagong Economics professor by the name of Muhammad Yunus in a little village of Bangladesh. From there it has expanded and the concept had evolved to include Microfinance and Micro insurance as well. What we as students in the Developing countries group would like to do is explore the practical implementation of these concepts in a developing country environment. The project is surely open for discussion and new and innovative ideas. So all comment and criticism is welcome since you dare to ShARE.
