Differences in interest rates in Latin American and Asian MFIs: A Hierarchical Linear Models approach

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In this study we analyze interest rate differences for MFIs in Latin American, Africa,
Eastern Europe and Asian MFIs. Although previous studies have found that the main
interest rate drivers are operating expenses and average loan per borrower, we found
that this result is not significant for all regions. To reach the end, we used a hierarchical
linear model. Also, we found other specific country and regional factors which
determine the differences in MFI´s interest rates; such as people’s perceptions of
freedom of expression, government effectiveness and MFIs’ past due portfolio.
