Reconsidering UK Community Development Finance

Jessica Brown and Sargon Nissan
 
The report includes ten case studies of community finance initiatives in the US and the EU. These highlight the different features of community finance organisations, their target group and their core activities in order to identify what aspects of their operation are integral to creating successful interventions in deprived communities. The objective of these case studies is to highlight particular aspects of their activities and operating environment that are instructive for CDF in the UK.

Woodstock Institute provided case studies of US CDFIs.
