Microcredit in the UK: exploring health and wellbeing effects

Publication EMN Working papers

The relationship between income and health and wellbeing has been well established in the literature, however, evidence on the impact of income-based initiatives – such as Microcredit Initiatives (MCIs) – on health and wellbeing is still needed. This paper explores the pathways through which microcredit impacts on health and wellbeing and the underlying mechanisms of loan products that facilitate this connection.

This is the abstract from a research paper competing for the 13th European Microfinance Research Award.
