MICROCAPITAL BRIEF: MicroFinanza Issues 13 Institutional, Credit, TrueLift Ratings to Microfinance Institutions in Haiti, Latin America, Togo

During April 2017, Italy’s MicroFinanza Rating issued four microfinance institutional ratings. Two of these were to affiliates of French NGO Entrepreneurs du Monde: BB- with a stable outlook to Assilassimé Solidarité of Togo and CC “under observation” to Palmis Mikwofinans Sosyal of Haiti. The other two are BB+ with a stable outlook to Conserva of Mexico and BB+ with a positive outlook to Centro Financiero Empresarial (CFE) of Panama, an affiliate of Développement international Desjardins (DiD), which is a unit of Canada’s cooperative Desjardins Group. MicroFinanza also issued less comprehensive “credit ratings” ranging from AA to BB to seven Bolivian institutions.

Furthermore, Fundación Paraguaya and Guatemala’s Friendship Bridge earned “leader” designations under the Truelift framework for reducing poverty and measuring impact. Truelift, which has certified MicroFinanza to issue such “milestones,” operates in partnership with the Social Performance Task Force and the Smart Campaign of Accion’s Center for Financial Inclusion.
