ICM Bibliography for
Bangladesh

References on informal credit markets for Bangladesh

Other countries currently available include - People's Republic of China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, South Korea, Sri Lanka, and Thailand.

Besides the references listed below, also check those that discuss ICMs in Asia as a whole, or in multiple countries (references are listed along with the countries they cover). I have very few references for non-Asian countries, but hopefully, that will grow too....
