Abstract

What do randomized control trials (RCTs) tell us about the impact of microfinance? This article reports on presentations at a three-day conference in New York in October 2010, 'Microfinance Impact and Innovation Conference', which provided evidence from RCTs on the impact of micro-insurance, asset-transfer programmes, savings and other aspects of microfinance. The article also raises questions about control over research into microfinance impact and innovation, and how far findings can be generalized.
