La microfinance et ses portraits : médiations paradoxales de la parole des « pauvres »

Abstract : The Microcredit Summit Campaign is composed of a varied network of actors. Since 1997, it has been advocating the recognition of microcredit as a tool to fight poverty. Portraits of “poor” clients are widely used in Microcredit Summit Campaign documents to represent borrowers and to support the claim of the efficacy of microfinance. For those who are represented, these portraits, considered here as a semiotic form, provide mediated access to the public sphere. Yet, biased modes of representation, they produce paradoxes of visibility which raise the issue of an ethics of representation.
