Microfinance and social impact investment

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Microfinance and Social Investments are considered among the most powerful alternative tools to fight poverty and financial exclusion. These tools have a strong social "value" that should be measured in terms of positive effects of the investment/financial instrument on income and household consumption, the role of women, education and health and productive activities. Contrary to what is reported in most of the literature, impact finance is not directed for developed countries but for industrialized ones too. In this perspective, this research aims to investigate what are the segments targeted by the impact finance, such as methods of intervention, instruments and financial intermediaries involved.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
