  • I think this is a great and reasonably powerful intro. Show one line at a time. Read it forcefully. Pause a bit so it sinks in. Show the next line. This is all we really want/expect them to remember after the presentation.

  • The prices are not higher to make huge profits off of the poor. They are higher because we are struggling to cover our costs.The prices in this data set are pretty closely matched… we can argue that this looks like a competitive market price.
  • We’ll discuss whether those prices are transparent a bit later. But let’s look at one reason we consistently talk about the negative impact of interest rate caps on microfinance….
  • Interest rate caps wouldn’t stop high-profit-making. If clients of those $2000 loans didn’t know that some MFIs were charging much higher prices than the competition, some MFIs could make very high profits. Interest rate caps didn’t stop those profits made from unfair competition. What is needed instead of interest rate caps is pricing transparency.
