ORGANIZATIONAL LEARNING, MICROFINANCE, AND REPLICATION:
Vol. Volume 7, Number 4 December/2002
This paper provides a brief introduction to microfinance programs in international development, and to Nonaka’s (1994) four-phase organizational learning framework. The four-phase learning model is then used to provide a detailed examination of the replication of a microfinance Department of Bolivia by Mennonite Economic Development Associates (MEDA). Implications for microfinance and international development are discussed.
