Abstract

Culture matters in the design of microfinance programs. Microfinance is presented as an anitpoverty strategy that can be replicated worIdwide by providing very small loans to the poorest of the poor for self-employment. The dimensions of culture of Geert Hofstede are used as an example of the differences among cultures that must be examined before designing microfinance program replications.
