The 2016-17 State of Housing Microfinance: Understanding the Business Case for Housing Microfinance

S. Prieto & E. Simmons | Habitat for Humanity International

The 2016-17 State of Housing Microfinance, based upon a survey of 101 housing microfinance practitioners, is composed of insights and findings regarding practitioners’ perceptions of the challenges and opportunities facing housing microfinance, successful implementation strategies, and the performance of housing microfinance portfolios. Using a simple framework to analyze these responses at the regional and global levels, we explore the market-level, institutional-level, product-segmentation-level, and profitability drivers that make differentiated housing microfinance products a viable and attractive option for financial service providers.
