Microfinance is a field that has received increasing attention over the years in the development community. It is excluded from the delivery of financial services to people from traditional banks. For many years most of the work was carried out on subjects such as credit and saving methods. However, the focus in recent years has moved to institutional sustainability effects of the commercialization of microfinance to maximize. An important part of microfinance commercialization is the mobilization of funds from money and capital markets in order to reduce dependence on donors and governments to improve the credit intermediation of microfinance institutions. One of the most innovative ways to mobilize resources for microfinance lending is through the establishment of microfinance funds, channel investments from the capital markets for microfinance institutions either as loans, guarantees or – more rarely – equity. BlueOrchard Finance is a major player in this area through the management of Dexia Microcredit Fund (DMCF). HKS case number 1,762.0
