Microfinance is now an
embedded feature of almost all low and middle income countries inextricably linked
to the development of local markets and economies. These countries are often
the most exposed to disasters triggered by natural
hazards and so one must ask: “Can microfinance improve its role in building the resilience of communities exposed
to disaster risk?”
VisionFund's microfinance tools are an essential component of World Vision's response to natural disasters. You can read more about our integrated disaster recovery approach at www.climatedisasters.org. VisionFund's work is explained in the 'Aiding Recovery' section. .
