Microfinance, Youth and Conflict: West Bank Study
by David James-Wilson, Joan Hall in 2013
SummaryThis case study is part of the Microfinance, Youth and Conflict research initiative. The West Bank was chosen as a case study location because it offers a unique context in which to examine the impact of conflict on employment for youth, the supply and demand for finance, and the roles of microfinance institutions (MFIs), youth-serving organizations (YSOs), families, and other entities in meeting the demand. Two research teams conducted individual interviews and focus groups with MFI managers and loan officers, YSO staff, youth and adult clients of MFIs, and concerned adults and youth.
