CGAP Newsflash: Implementing Social Performance

Wednesday, October 17, 2007

Many microfinance institutions aim to help poor people, but can they prove they are helping?

While most MFIs report on their financial performance, few report on their social performance as they feel that social performance is too vague and difficult to report on. Now the Social Performance Task Force has developed a common reporting framework that will help. The framework is a set of indicators that institutions with a social mandate can use to report on their social performance.

Learn about the social performance movement and concrete tools for reporting on social performance in CGAP’s latest Focus Note, Beyond Good Intentions: Measuring the Social Performance of Microfinance Institutions, and visit the Social Performance Resource Center.
