  1. Values shown are coefficients from ordinary least-squares regression. Each column represents a different regression. The dependent variable is the microfinance participation rate of nonleader households in a village. The covariates are the layer-dependent diffusion versatility of the given layer, averaged over the set of leaders, as well as the 5 control variables
