  11. 11. Overview of the 5 MFIs in the Philippines   MISSION: All 5 MFIs reported having their mission focused on poverty reduction, income growth, employment generation, growth of existing business and women’s empowerment   TARGET MARKET: All 5 MFIs have as target market women, urban and rural clients   GEOGRAPHIC OUTREACH: mainly rural (55%)   WOMEN’S OUTREACH: above 77%, served by group-loan methodology   DIVERSIFICATION OF FINANCIAL SERVICES: wide variety of credit services, savings, insurance products and other services   NON FINANCIAL SERVICES: all offer enterprise services, adult education and women’s empowerment services
  12. 12. Staff incentives and policies on SR towards the clients, community and environment   STAFF INCENTIVES: All 5 MFIs have incentive schemes related to areas such as attracting new clients from the institution’s target market and maintaining portfolio quality .   SR TO CLIENTS: several policies related to the 6 principles of the SMART Campaign: 1) prevention of over-indebtedness, 2)Transparent and Responsible Pricing 3)Appropriate Collections Practices 4)Ethical Staff Behavior 5)Mechanisms for Redress of Grievances 6) Privacy of Client Data   SR TO COMMUNITY/ENVIRONMENT: Most MFIs have informal policies such as avoid credit for enterprises with negative social value, promote transparency and anti-corruption, raise awareness of client about environmental impacts
  13. 13. Global Challenges on reporting/data validation   Poverty profile of clients (32% of MFIs could report this data. 20 MFIs used or are testing the PPI (3 from Philippines: ASKI, Gata Daku, Bank of Caraga) and 8 PAT (1 from Philippines: CEVI)   Progress out of poverty of clients (Philippines MFIs are starting using PPI but data not reported yet)   General lack of data worldwide on outreach about non financial services, employment creation, but the MFIs in Philippines could report these data. No data on children’s education in the Philippines, despite one of main development goals   External data validation: 31 MFIs sent a social rating (1 from Philippines, ASKI), work in progress on social audit (investors need to include SP in their due-diligence). Raising interest from MIVs in social audit
  14. 14. MIX Agenda on SP Analysis   Creation of peer groups to assess the alignment between mission – internal activities - products and results   Focus on social performance management and quality of infomation reported (collaboration with IMP-ACT)   Comparative analysis at regional level
  15. 15. MIX Research Agenda: Linkages between Social Performance and Financial Performance Analyzing the correlation between financial and social performance will help us to:   Identify links to the MIX Global 100 and make recommendations for a set of new, more comprehensive rankings; and   Identify links between MFIs’ performance and product development. Previous research carried out by MIX on financial performance helped us identify four areas of financial performance and related indicators that are more likely to be affected by SP outcomes. These areas include:   Productivity: Borrowers per Staff and Savers per Staff   Efficiency: Operating Efficiency (as % of Average Loan Portfolio) and Cost per Borrower as % of GNIPC   Portfolio Quality: PAR30 & Write-off Ratio   Profitability: Return on Average Assets (ROA)
  16. 16. MIX agenda on social performance standards in 2010 • New data collection started: MIX will collect SPS reports until September 2010 •  ata analysis: First draft available at the SPTF meeting in Bern in D July •  trengthening data validation process S • nclusion of social performance data in MIX Market I • Change of the diamonds of transparency system •  log on social performance indicators in English, Spanish and B French: www.spblog.org
