I'm loving your provocations here, Karine! I think that negative issues underlying microfinance are often swept under the carpet or drowned out by the slick communications put out by microfinance providers themselves. (I also think that minor-savings doesn't get the attention it deserves – based on my observations in India: http://www.randomspecific.com/women-together-incentivising-savings)
You've really hit it on the head for me with asking how we might encourage self sufficiency without imposing our set methods.
