Micro Assessment 2

Abstract This Micro Assessment is about a client named Jane Doe that presented at CPS in Copperas Cove after having an altercation with her husband. Jane is a young mother that has a history of mental health and anger management issues. She has been married for just over a year. The client and her husband have a history of arguing and fussing in front of the children. Jane Jane was arrested after grabbing a knife and trying to stab her husband with the knife. When she did not succeed at stabbing him with the knife Jane went upstairs and overdosed on several pills. She was taken to the hospital and was immediately signed out by her mother that works at the hospital. Because of her leaving the hospital against doctor’s advice, CPS was called to remove Jane’s children from the home for their safety. This Micro Assessment will give detailed history about Jane and give suggested client-directed treatment plans for her treatment options.

...Sustainability of BMT financing for Developing Micro-enterprises Widiyanto b. Mislan Cokro1 Abdul Ghafar b. Ismail2 School School of Economics Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Bangi, 43600 Selangor D.E., Malaysia E-mail : agibab@ukm.my This draft, February 2008 Abstract The aim of this study is to analyze the sustainability of Islamic micro-financing for developing micro-enterprises (ME). We use the sample of Baitul Mal Wat Tamwil (BMT), as Islamic microfinance institution in Indonesia. Two approaches will be used to explore the sustainability, i.e., technical efficiency (using data envelopment analysis (DEA) and level of outreach. The results indicate that: first, generally the efficiency of BMTs is relatively low. Scale efficiency also indicates that BMTs are operated still far from optimal scale. The results suggest that there is gap in efficiency scores obtained from CCR and BCC models. This indicates that BMTs still face the managerial problems. Second, Islamic micro-financing is useful for developing micro-enterprises and contribute a great social benefits to the society in several ways. Although the profitability efficiency of BMTs is relatively low, since generally BMTs have made a profit and social benefit, Islamic financing can be predicted to be sustainable – able to provide viable Islamic financing. Keywords: Sustainability, technical efficiency of profitability efficiency, level of outreach. 1 Lecturer of Islamic economics, Sultan Agung Islamic......

Micro- Credit

...and do not have any assets to use as collateral. As a result administrative cost of supplying loans to the poor population is extremely high causing the poor to have access to loans only through local money-lenders at high interest rates. Micro-credit financing starts with the assumption that the poor is willing to pay high interest rates to have access to finance; the system uses the social trust as the collateral. Loans are given to individuals, but an entire group is responsible for the repayment. Hence, the borrower who does not fulfil his commitment to repay back will lose his/her social capital. Micro-credit institutions report that their repayment rates are above the commercial repayment rates, sometimes as high as 97%. Today, there are millions of poor people around the world who turn to be entrepreneurs through the micro-credit sector. Definitions Micro-credit Is a small financial loan made to poverty-stricken individuals seeking to start their own business and enable them to become self employed. It’s highly extended to poor borrowers who lack collateral, steady employment and verifiable credit history mainly to stimulate entrepreneurship, alleviate poverty and increase income. The UN Millennium Project identifies micro-credit as “one of the development strategies that should be implemented and supported to attain the bold ambition of reducing world poverty by half.” Financial sector Is the set and interaction of institutions, instruments, and the......

...programmes such as skill training, social awareness building, education, health, agricultural development etc for the poor receiving microcredit from them in addition to providing lending services. BRAC and Proshika follows a "credit plus" by offering health, education and agricultural programmes. ASA, Grameen Bank follows "credit alone" approach but Grameen Bank supports some social development activities for its borrowers. Impact of women participation When we talk about the impact assessment of women's participation in MCP two different but closely linked types of changes are expected: Conditional change: It is essentially welfare-based focusing on increased health, education or livelihood provisions for women in order to improve their immediate circumstances. Positional change: It occurs when women are able to increase their decision-making role, and to take control over key aspects of their lives, i.e. they have increased power. Participation and empowerment A rapid impact assessment study conducted by the World Bank/IDA through Bangladesh Institute of Development Studies (BIDS) from 1997-2000 was with a view to monitor and assess the impacts of MCPs undertaken by the POs of PKSF. It has found microcredit in rural areas as one of the major factors for upgrading the status of women both in the family and the community and point towards an overall positive direction as follows: Women's social position Women's social position in the community is evaluated through......

...* The Micro Dimension In this section, we will see more clearly the role of the smallest units which is the micro economic dimension. The previous section has described the macro and meso economic dimension. The macro level is the level of the individual in the organization. At the micro-level, also referred to as the local level, the research population typically is an individual in their social setting or a small group of individuals in a particular social context. Examples of micro-level levels of analysis include, but are not limited to, the following. * Alien, stateless person, asylum seeker, refugee * Person, citizen * Partnership, marriage * Families, household * Neighbourhood * Cases of maids abuse Malaysia is also not free from issues related to abusing the maids by employer. This crime is increasingly rising despite various actions committed by certain parties to overcome this crime. There are so many kinds of abuses made by the employers on their maid. Some of them have been beaten, raped, tortured with scalding water and nearly all have been treated like slaves and not paid for months or years of exhausting work, beaten, raped, tortured with scalding water and nearly all have been treated like slaves and not paid for months or years of exhausting work.

...majority of these institutions customers, just like the DTMs, are women. Women owned businesses are making a significant contribution to the Kenyan economy. Their businesses account for about 48 percent of all micro, small and medium sized enterprises although they own just 1 percent of registered land titles, with around 5-6 percent of registered titles held in joint names. This lack of land and property is a significant barrier to Kenyan women in general because property is used as collateral for business credit. In Kenya, as in many African countries, providing financial services to poorer populations in rural areas remains a challenging goal. The Kenyan rural environment is characterized by poor communications infrastructure, relatively low population density, low levels of literacy, relatively undiversified economies, low profitability and or high risk of many economic activities. As a result, it has so far proved unattractive to MFIs, let alone commercial financial institutions. 1.2 Statement of the Problem The studies on microfinance and women empowerment are few and provocative. Adam & Von Pische, (1992) argued that “debt is not an effective tool for helping most poor people to enhance their economic condition be they operators of small farms or micro entrepreneurs”. Other similar studies have shown that microfinance may be relevant for poverty reduction, but does not reach the marginalized as often claimed. The results from these studies......

...villages. Hence, it is easier to form groups that would follow a standardized procedure. This makes it easier to operate with the Grameen system in Bangladesh than in India. It is observed that the Grameen system is better suited for more densely populated areas. There are parts of India which are as densely populated as Bangladesh, and some of the Northern hill tracts, and some part of the Sundarbans, are fairly thinly populated. The population density in India is a little higher than 1/3rd that of Bangladesh. In the Grameen system, the groups avail micro-financial services from the Bank, while the SHGs are effectively a microbank carrying out their own savings mobilization and lending. The basic difference in the approaches of the Grameen system and the SHG model is that the former starts with microcredit and then graduates to micro-savings, while the SHG model is based on the concept of micro-savings leading to micro-credit. Thus, the SHG model is more sustainable from viability point of view. Though both the models are for the poor, yet Grameen system is more suited to the very poor category of people who may not have sufficient fund to generate the initial savings required in the SGH system. Unlike Bangladesh, India has a good network of commercial banks with almost 70% of the 80,000-odd bank branches located in the rural and semi-urban areas. Policies of the Government to make it mandatory for the banks to extend credit to the priority sector and also support......

...only to the sectoral equity caps, entry routes and other relevant sectoral regulations. The issue of de-reservation had been a subject of animated debate within government for more than twenty years. The Approach to the Eleventh Five Year Plan noted the adverse implications of reservation of products for exclusive manufacture by the MSEs and recommended the policy of progressive de-reservation. To facilitate further investments for technological up-gradation and higher productivity in the micro and small enterprises, 654 items have been taken off the list of items reserved for exclusive manufacture by the manufacturing micro and small enterprises in the last few years – reducing it to 21 at present. This has helped the sector in enlarging the scale of operations and also paved the way for entry of larger enterprises in the manufacture of these products in keeping with the global standards. Credit/Finance Credit is one of the critical inputs for the promotion and development of the micro and small enterprises. Some of the features of existing credit policy for the MSEs are: Priority Sector Lending: Credit to the MSEs is part of the Priority Sector Lending Policy of the banks. For the public and private sector banks, 40% of the net bank credit (NBC) is earmarked for the Priority Sector. For the foreign banks, however, 32% of the NBC is earmarked for the Priority Sector, of which 10% is earmarked for the MSE sector. Any shortfall in such lending by the foreign banks has to......
