Abstract This symposium brings together recent empirical contributions with respect to a number of related and highly relevant issues on the economics of microfinance. In particular, the contributions provide answers to the following two main questions: (1) does microfinance have an impact on the social and economic situation of the poor in developing nations; and (2) are microfinance institutions sustainable in the long term and is there a trade-off between sustainability and outreach?
