IPS is pleased to announce the launch of the monthly newsletter “Microfinance: Can Micro Loans Make a Macro Difference?” another initiative in the frame of the IPS cooperation agreement with the Agency for International Cooperation for Development (AECID) in view of the Microcredit Summit to be held this year in Valladolid, Spain (November 14-17, 2011).

The monthly newsletter gathers a selection of items produced by IPS, to track the spread of microcredit and the wider debate surrounding the small-scale loan movement aimed at alleviating poverty as it has matured over time. Through special coverage, IPS unravels this unique banking system and its impact from Bangladesh to Benin, Haiti to Honduras, and across the global South.

The newsletter is available in English at “Microfinance: Can Micro Loans Make a Macro Difference?” and Spanish at “Microfinanzas: Microcréditos con macro resultados”.

IPS gratefully acknowledges the valuable support of the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation for Development (AECID) and the Microcredit Summit Campaign.
