One of the goals of this site is to educate both current practitioners, as well as beginners just looking for more information. I'm an Information Technology guy trying to learn more about microfinance myself, so I'll asks some of the more basic questions and hopefully others will find your comments useful.
Do you consider microlending (from MFIs) more or less risky than loans given by traditional banks?
I asked this question once before but didn't get a clear answer at the global industry level. The answer I received was dependent on the country and the credit raters within the particular country. This seems to be true but I'm looking for an industry wide answer.
Thanks Guys and Gals!
