Microfinance industry is going through a period of significant transformation. Originally created to cover needs of poor by providing micro loans, today microfinance institutions are able to offer more than just a microcredit. Launch of micro savings schemes and insurance is a key to company's sustainability and customer protection. Outrunning growth of traditional financial institutions, microfinance sector reached, on average, a 20 percent growth in 2012.
Despite the high growth, the sector is still struggling to recover from the global financial crisis and attacks on its reputation as a service to the world's poor. Mission drift and other external risks, such as overindebtedness, lack of regulation in the industry in many countries, reputational risks stay within a scope of concerns of all parties involved into the sector. Moreover, internal risks such as a mismanagement, untransparent corporate governance, bad client and risk assessment procedures have deeper implications on company's activities and its sustainability. In order to overcome these difficulties, microfinance institutions, investors, development organizations and regulators should work out common principles for social business.
3rd Annual World Microfinance Finance Forum of Eurogm will create a platform for a broader discussion of these issues, bringing together microfinance institutions and regulators from MENA, South-Eastern Europe, Central Asia and Caucasus, as well as European investors supporting development of the sector.
