Assessment of the Sustainable Performance of SME Finance Service Providers

The European Microfinance Platform (e-MFP) and the Social Performance Task Force (SPTF) have published a study on the Assessment of the Sustainable performance of SME finance institutions. The study was drafted by Lucia Spaggiari, MFR Business Development Director, in collaboration with the e-MFP Investor Action Group and the Social Performance Task Force (SPTF) Social Investors Working Group. The proposed approach offers modular options to investors willing to assess the sustainable performance of SME FSPs (Financial Servive Providers). The suggested metrics adapt the SPTF Universal Standards of Social Performance Management to the different goals, language and needs of SME banks and other SME FSPs.
