Social Performance and Microfinance

Microfinance is considered not only an economic tool to alleviate poverty but also an approach to a social mission.  The social value of microfinance relates to how the lives of the poor are improved through financial services.  Most microfinance institutions are charged with a  social mission and delivering certain social objectives.  These may include: serving an increasing number of poor in a given community; improving quality of financial services that reach the poor;  promoting economic development of clients and community (through health care services, education, and risk management).
