Abstract: In this paper, we look to expand upon current literature on microfinance regarding loan performance and group lending methods. For our research, we utilized a wide data set consisting of information on microfinance institutions throughout the world from 113 different countries. We examined group and individual liability methods and their effects on portfolio at risk ratios, a measurement of risk in loan performance, at the MFI level, using OLS and MFI Fixed Effects regressions. Our findings confirm evidence from recent literature that suggests group and individual liability methods do not affect repayment rates or loan performance.
