Abstract

This paper looks at the progress with the microfinance model in post-conflict Bosnia. It analyses why the evidence clearly indicates that has begun to fail as a development model and the international development community has made a major policy mistake in promoting it. It analyses some of the reasons why microfinance was considered so important to Bosnia.

Keywords: microfinance, Bosnia, transition, post-conflict, informalisation
