Structured Microfinance in China
Abstract: In this paper we discuss the potential for commercial
microfinance in China. Particular emphasis is put on securitization of
microloans and on structured microfinance in a China context. Three
particular factors that we believe could support a strong growth in Chinese
structured microfinance are (i) the lack of currency risk, (ii) the scale
advantages and (iii) the massive potential interest from traditional,
domestic as well as international, financial firms. On the policy side,
structured microfinance could be an important tool for fighting
unemployment in China. It could also be used to circumvent corruption or
government bureaucracy in the microlending process.
