MFR offers a range of rating products in response to the different characteristics of FSPs (level of development, institutional typology) and the information needs of the market.
The inclusive finance industry (FSPs, networks, investors, regulators and donors) recognizes our consolidated capacity to evaluate the institutional and social performances and risks of FSPs, by systematically requiring our rating services.
The social rating provides an expert opinion on the social performance management of a financial service provider and its capacity to put its mission into practice and achieve social goals. The social rating is fully aligned with the Universal Standards for Social Performance Management and the Client Protection Principles. The social rating can be easily combined with additional related services, such as client outcome measurement, client surveys, SPI4 assessment, and social performance roadmap.Read More
