Frédéric Lavoie - Canada

I completed a master’s degree in International Business at HEC Montréal. My research interests are related to the provision of microfinance services in developing countries,  especially the implementation and replication of microcredit methodologies. My master’s thesis investigated the challenges related to the use and replication of microcredit methodologies. To reach this goal I studied Crediamigo, a microcredit program hosted by Banco do Nordeste, a public development bank in the Northeast of Brazil.

In 2009-2010, I investigated the challenges of the implementation of six communy banks in Sao Paulo and Ceara states, Brazil. The results will be presented in a forthcoming article (2010).
