SummaryThis brief focuses on micro-leasing as a viable option to loans for quickly replacing productive assets lost by the poor in major disasters.The brief explores emerging lessons about how microleasing can provide a win–win proposition to collateral-poor clients and liquidity strapped financial institutions, as well as to donors and policy makers concerned about market distortions and creation of grant mentality.
