Replicating Dreams

Examining the Grameen Bank and Kashf Foundation

Nabiha Syed

Widely portrayed as a cure-all for poverty, the group-lending micro-credit model has received much attention as a development strategy. This book introduces the basic structure of Grameen Bank's group-lending model through an examination of its general tenets, eligibility requirements, and services offered. The study concentrates on Kashf Foundation, one of the most successful micro-credit institutions in Pakistan, and both the environmental differences as well as the consequent institutional changes in the replication process.
