La microfinance en Tunisie et en Egypte : un outil au service du développement local.

Abstract : Microfinance in Egypt and in Tunisia as well has been given for decades an answer to the permanent need from populations that are excluded from the formal banking system. These populations have no other sources of finance than that of microfinance. These funds are mainly, microcredit, savings and insurance. Our research questions the influence and the capacity that microfinance exerts upon both countries especially on their participation to another development mode, local and socially sustainable. To address these questions we adopted a hybrid methodology (in depth documentation, interviews and surveys with questionnaires).This method has permitted to shed a better light on the microfinance issue through a typology of microfinance institutions and through their ability to meet the demand from the populations of rural and suburban areas in Tunisia and Egypt. Our main theoretical contribution is to make it clear that this whole set of elements allows an analysis about the impact of microfinance on development. To what extent does it enable the people to escape from poverty, what is its place in the local development especially in the rural and suburban areas in the large cities like Tunis and Cairo ? Here are the main questions we could deal with.
