CIVIS November 2002: Micasa: Housing Financing in Peru (4ii)


The CIVIS notes series shares knowledge and learning arising from Cities Alliance projects and other activities in slum upgrading and city development strategies. It also serves as a platform for policy dialogue and debate among city development stakeholders, including national and local governments, donors and slum dwellers to impact change in the lives of the urban poor and advance the urban development agenda.

Part of the Shelter Finance for the Poor series, CIVIS Issue 4ii is a case study of the Micasa (My House) programme launched by Peruvian bank Mibanco through the prism of scale, sustainability, and outreach to the poor.
