To what successful strategices have microfinance institutions use to scale their operation in Africa?
John CrockettResearch Analyst Theia Innovation Consultancy
Microloan Foundation have an interesting story about their scale up from Malawi to Zambia. The first part of the story can be found here http://www.devex.com/en/articles/a-cautiously-exported-microfinance-scheme I am not sure how they feel the scale up has gone since then, maybe get in touch with Kenson Chipaka for more information or the microloan website. http://www.microloanfoundation.org.uk/Home

In the private sector the most difficult issues is availability of credit data, however most have used technology (mpesa) and a direct distribution model. The focus on most is government employees for commercial microfinance- as risk mitigator for unstable employment.
