Over the past ten years, for many NGO’s the primary focus has been on expanding their lending activities to reach a significant percent of the micro-enterprise market. In an effort to achieve this goal and recognizing the limitations of donor monies to fund the desired increase in portfolio, a few NGO’s have built links with the formal financial system. During this period they have developed “alternative financing mechanisms”; they have moved away from donor funding into the traditional sources of capital available to the typical corporation: internally generated funds,bank loans and both debt and equity financing raised in the capital markets.
