Book Launch: "International development in Africa: Between Theory and Practice", including a co-authored chapter by Miri Stryjan (department of economics).
Miri Strijan co-wrote a chapter in this new book (together with Dr. Reut Barak Weekes) about microfinance, saving groups and financial inclusion. It's a popular-science book in Hebrew about different aspects of international development and development initiatives in Africa.
The chapter is entitled (in Hebrew): הכללה פיננסית והשלכותיה החברתיות
It is both a short introduction to microfinance in Hebrew, and a discussion about if and how a special kind of microfinance: "saving groups" can lead to financial inclusion for the poorest people in a community.
