Microfinance's "two cents" on its own future

This page in:

Csfi_report_boat_with_bananas_mic_2Microfinance professionals, who responded to a new survey by the Center for the Study of Financial Innovation, identified poor management skills as the main risk the industry faces. Poor corporate governance is also seen as a great risk, but more so by investors and analysts than by practitioners.

According to the report "microfinance institutions tend to be dominated by 'visionaries' who are strong on charisma but less so on management skills and strategic flexibility."

More than 300 respondents from 74 countries contributed to the survey. It focused on institutions with more than $5m in assets which are profitable and capable of commercial growth.
