Microfinance in South Asia
Although relatively close geographically and with sizeable populations that benefit from microfinance, Myanmar and the Philippines are quite different in other respects.
The Philippines is a more open and developed country with higher GDP per capita than Myanmar, but with a large, low-income population. Myanmar has been a closed society for many years and has only recently opened up to the broader world, a development which allowed formal microfinance to become established.
