    11. 11. Key Features of Social Collateral Approach 1.Peer pressure 2. Information transfer 3. Mutual insurance 4. Cooperation

Peer Pressure <ul><li>Joint liability: every member of the peer group is in default if any member is. </li></ul><ul><li>If peers can/will impose social penalties on each other, this adds an additional incentive not to default on one’s portion. </li></ul><ul><li>=> reduces moral hazard </li></ul><ul><li>reduces the riskiness of the loans </li></ul><ul><li>increases likelihood of obtaining the loan </li></ul>

    15. 15. <ul><li>Cooperation allows for bundling of too small loans into one reasonable size loan . </li></ul><ul><li>Cooperation = coordination to simultaneously open the right mix of interdependent businesses . </li></ul><ul><li>enhances lending efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>enhances value of pre-existing collateral </li></ul><ul><li>borrower group is self-diversified </li></ul>Cooperation
