Abstract (EN)In many developing countries, where the judicial system is typically weak and where contracts are not legally protected against defaulting, there exists a multitude of membership-based organisations aiming at providing financial services to their members alongside more formal alternatives to access financial services. If these informal organisations persist despite the enforcement constraints they face, we are tempted to ask how those financial groups overcome commitment issues and sustain cooperation?
