  5. 5. 5 Mechanism for Redress of Client Grievances A financial institution measures up to this principle by having a mechanism for collecting, responding in a timely manner, and resolving problems for customers.
  6. 6. 6 A Mechanism for Redress of Grievances Includes:  Having a process for collecting and resolving concerns and complaints from clients.  Dedicating staff resources to the complaints system.  Responding quickly.  Internal audit or other monitoring systems check that complaints are resolved satisfactorily.  Incorporating client feedback into the improvement of products and services. A suggestion box is not a substitute for proper handling of concerns and complaints.

  8. 8. 8 How Dissatisfied Clients Affect the Institution Findings from the Field: A very satisfied client will talk about his/her experiences with 3-4 people, but a dissatisfied client will tell 8-9 people. When a dissatisfied client’s complaints are received, answered, and solved, there is a 90% chance that s/he will return to the institution. 90% of dissatisfied clients whose problems are not resolved will never return to do business with the institution again.

  16. 16. 16 Good Practice: Using Multiple Complaints Channels At one institution, complaints are handled through several channels depending on the urgency and complexity of the complaint: Source: Adapted from Banco Solidario
  17. 17. 17 Good Practices from Around the World One MFI includes the phone number for its call center on the first page of all its contracts. The same MFI also includes the phone number for the government agency responsible for client protection on the same page of the contract. One MFI requires its Internal Audit department to check a sample of dissatisfied clients to make sure they received quick responses and resolutions. If they didn’t, the department prompts more investigation.
