AbstractPublic credit institutions satisfied the demands of governments, business corporations, or merchants. However, these specific forms of financial assets were only of interest for a specific - mostly the wealthier - part of the society and left out a large part of the population. To what extent the financial involvement of the private sector mattered, both within and outside from public credit institutions, is not known. By bringing together private funding and public bodies, the financial activities of (poor) households, families, and firms will be analysed against the backdrop of different financial needs and their solutions.
