Research Grant Projects

The central aim of this project is to identify the impact of introducing a flexible loan contract on the credit market.
A randomized pilot experiment of BRAC Microfinance’s new flexible loan contract provides information on credit take-up, the pool of borrowers, and the potential for moral hazard abatement among microfinance borrowers.
