"Pengelolaan ADB (Asian Development Bank) tentang proyek pengembangan Microfinance untuk Timor Lorosae adalah sebuah pemahaman yang minim dan rencana mundur. Sewaktu batas kredit untuk Timor Lorosae non profit credit union (koperasi simpan pinjam) diterima dengan tangan terbuka, usulan dari Microfinance Bank merupakan sebuah lembaga tidak mengakar yang bertujuan untuk mengenakan bunga yang sangat tinggi dari "yang termiskin dari kelompok miskin" " Dr Tim Anderson, Campaigner, AID/WATCH
