Published on February 12 of this year, the World Bank's 'The New Microfinance Handbook: A Financial Market System Perspective,' edited by Joanna Ledgerwood is a sort of how-to when it comes to the persistent microfinance approach to financial services Or rather, as World Bank Publications explains, "The result is a book which is less of a 'how-to' guide but rather a description of financial markets and how they work, or do not work, in serving the needs of the poor - and what is needed to improve the market."

Toronto's Social Finance offered a live account of their 'Clients at the Centre: Workshop to launch The New Microfinance Handbook' at the end of April in an effort to start and continue a discussion on equitable financial services.
