CGAP is proud to announce the launch of:
Regulation and Supervision Resource Center
The Regulation and Supervision Resource Center Website brings together a wealth of information in one convenient, user-friendly Website, offering:
Library with recommended reading
Country profiles for 50 developing and transitional countries
http://microfinancegateway.org/resource_centers/reg_sup/micro_reg/ for comparing regulation and supervision
This is a great resource, which we hope you find relevant to your work. Whether you need to find the laws governing microfinance in Brazil or Zimbabwee, learn about legal reform in Bosnia, or check licensing requirements in Morocco, it's all here in one convenient place.
We hope the site contributes to a broader understanding of regulation and supervision in microfinance and helps you in a practical way with your country-level work.
The Regulation and Supervision Resource Center is the result of two years' collaboration between CGAP and the IRIS Center at the University of Maryland, and we look to continue to improve this resource. Take a look at the site at www.cgap.org/regulation and let us know if there are other features you would find useful or updates you would suggest. Please email your suggestions to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
