Urban Poor Funds; development by the people for the people
Working paper, 90 pages
In ten nations, a new kind of finance agency, Urban Poor Funds, are working with federations of savings groups formed by slum or shack dwellers or homeless people. These funds support the members of these federations to obtain better quality shelter with basic services, by providing finance systems that serve their needs (including supporting their savings).
