JOSB vol 2(1) pp26-43 -paper health and microfinance- leveraging the 2 sectors to alleviate poverty -by shieila leathermanU North Carlina Chapel Hill, Marcia Metcalfe Freedom From Hunger Davis CA et al

Freedom From Hunger and 5 MFIs - Benin, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, India, Phillippines  -tested whether mfis could sustainably offer health-related services with positive health and social impact for client. Health services ranged through education, health financing  (loans, savings and microinsurance) to linkages with health providers and health products. We find that mfis offer large and growing distribution networks that can provide services to improve health and financial security accuing to multiple stakeholders. Relatively modest investments to support integration of health and financial services can yield substantial financial and non-financial benefits.
