FROM NGOs TO FFIs IN MICROFINANCE SERVICES:
CONVERSION ROAD MAP AND ITS CHALLENGES
Comparative study of nine Eastern European MFIs
Project proposed by Zoran KOSTOVThis project intends to look into the logical framework of the MFI’s scaling up process, analyzing both its strengths and challenges. As the tendency of creation regulated financial institutions rather than historically preferred NGOs globally faces pro and contra argumentation, the project proposes rationale for conversion to be based on the particular experiences, as well as on qualitatively and quantitatively analyzed performances of nine East European MFIs.
The analysis would have to provide sufficient amount of information for the road map to be drafted and the challenges to be listed. It is intended the final report to be a kind of reference handbook for MFIs planning to carry out such a conversion.
