Abstract: The study analyses the problem and extent of cross-financing in the Grameen Bank system. The main finding is that cross-financing is rarely a problem. However, survey data indicate that long term borrowers, who generally have the highest loan portfolios, turn into irregular borrowers. The study was funded by NORAD.

Erland Sigvaldsen is a banking consultant with the Nordic Consulting Group.
