At this past summer's IAFFE conference, there were several interesting papers on this topic. You might try recent issues of the journal "Feminist Economics" and also check out the website: www.iaffe.org. I think some of the papers are available from the site. Good luck!

Subject: Re: [URPE] microfinance research
I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions on resources for critical analysis of microfinance. I am currently working on a research project where a 'microlender' is managing public funds that subsidize an industry. The funds are being used for low wage workers who are misclassified.
Is anyone familiar with how microfinance agencies are regulated and or have any experience with microfinance organizations that receive public money?
I am more than happy to provide more details offline. Please email me at the address below.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
