Gabriella Gimigliano, 'Thinking of Microfinance in the EU Framework: Regulatory Challenges' (2015) 26 European Business Law Review, Issue 5, pp. 693–711


The paper investigates microfinance framework at Community law level. Drawing a comparison with international background, it is examined the organization of microcredit service providers as well as user-provider contracting relationship. Provided financial inclusion as rationale of microfinance, the analysis maintains that there is a microcredit standard to deal and it is so heavily characterizing microfinance business that inclusive objective becomes legally relevant in user-provider contractual relationship as well as in corporate structure of service providers.
