Beyond Microfinance: Building Inclusive Rural Financial Markets in Central Asia

This book focuses on rural finance development issues in a set of countries about which little current literature on the subject exists. It also represents an attempt to redress a serious imbalance in the attention paid to rural financial market development that has been created by the overwhelming interest in and emphasis on microfinance during the last 2 decades.
