Picturing Microfinance is a collection of winning photos from CGAP’s annual Microfinance Photography Contest. The photos in this exhibit, contributed by both amateur and professional photographers, tell the story of this remarkable industry: its unique textures, vibrant new developments, and impact on the lives of poor people. Since 2006, this annual contest has been a beacon to photographers and microfinance stakeholders from around the world, with nearly 4,000 entries, representing all regions.
