Recognition

The Pro-Poor Principles framework defines four recognition milestones along the pathway to successful support of clients affected by poverty (see image here):  beginning with Aspirant, moving through to Emerging Practitioner, Achiever and Leader MFIs.

 Cashpor CRECER
 Key pro-poor facts: Cashpor’s annual survey data aims at tracking change over time and is collected by their internal audit team to analyze PPI score by loan cycle; after 6 cycles, of the ~25% of clients who have borrowed continuously, ~59% are above the $1.25 line; ~44% % are above the $1.50 line. [October 2013]  Key pro-poor facts: CRECER has designed a clear pathway to provoke the social change defined in their social mission; products and services aim at improving various aspects that CRECER defined as components of quality of life (economic activity, alimentation, health, education, social security, house). Considering geographical criteria defined by CRECER, 37% of clients live in municipalities <50,000 inhabitants and HDI<0.5, compared to the national average of 8%. Over 60% of clients are in less developed regions. [July 2014]

Small Enterprise Foundation (SEF) Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation (NWTF) Microfund for Women (MFW)
Key pro-poor facts: SEF is committed to enabling clients to make strides against poverty. SEF conducts considerable piloting and adaptation to test client needs; currently there are five credit options offered. 85% clients use monthly option (6,4 months’ term); otherwise fortnightly (expected for new clients, but new clients in existing groups end up paying monthly). [October 2013] Key pro-poor facts: NWTF shows the highest poverty rate of all the MFIs in the Grameen Foundation poverty calculation research (from 30% to 64%). A poverty movement report was provided to the Board of Directors, showing poverty change based on the PPI data. The Board established an SPM Committee to work more on positive change in clients’ lives and provide direction based on the poverty movement data received, including an increase in the activities of the Client Service Department for non-financial services. [October 2013] Key pro-poor facts: MFW implemented systems to include poor households. In particular, with each new loan it collected its clients’ income levels and proxies such as access to education as part of its loan appraisal process. MFW was the only institution in the market that cancelled the up-front fee and voluntarily lowered interest rates while maintaining an above average ROA for Jordan at 7.4%. [October 2013]

 FINCA Perú  Grameen Koota
Key pro-poor facts: According to the 2011 client satisfaction survey, 89% of clients rated the financial services received from FINCA Peru as very good or good. For non-financial services, 82% of customers rate the quality of training as 16+ (out of 20). In offices with the highest concentration of poverty, satisfaction was 80%. [October 2013] Key pro-poor facts: In order to serve its poor clients better, Grameen Koota offers a wide range of services to meet their needs including small size emergency and festival loans which are disbursed at the centers unlike other loan disbursement at branches. Additionally, water and sanitation loans, pension, and social awareness programs are also offered. Multiple approaches for collecting client feedback ensures that services are appropriate to clients’ needs; as and when required adaptations are made in products, services and their delivery. A goal sheet of staff at all levels includes ‘Customer perspective’ as one of the parameters. [December 2013]

Chamroeun Microfinance Limited (May 2015)  CAURIE-MF  Banco FIE
Key pro-poor facts: The only MFI in Senegal to offer credit and savings according to the village banking methodology (99%) suited to the needs of the poorest households. No minimum amount for credit and savings, and savings collected in the group can be given in internal credit to generate profits that can then be capitalized in the village bank or redistributed to members in the form of dividends. From its annual PPI survey on the same cohort of customers, the 2010 pilot survey revealed that as the number of cycles increases, % of clients falling below the NPL decreased (46.9% for 1-3 cycles, 44.8% for 4-6 cycles, and 42.9% for 7+ cycles). [October 2013] Key pro-poor facts: While Banco FIE does not specifically aim to reach poor populations, the incidence of poverty by unsatisfied basic needs in areas of operation is important, 48.2% and 48.0% (considering borrower and saver clients respectively), although lower than the national average of 58.6%. 63.4% of clients and 62.2% of the branches are located in municipalities whose poverty rate is below the national average.  [October 2013]
