During February 2017, Italy-based MicroFinanza Rating issued “microfinance institutional ratings” to the following institutions, all with stable outlooks: Indonesia’s Komida, which was assigned a grade of BB; Albania’s NOA, which earned a BBB; Haiti’s ACME, which was assigned a BB+; Vietnam’s Anh Chi Em (ACE), which got a BB-; and two institutions that each received an A-, Cambodia’s Amret and Palestine’s Faten. As for “creating value for clients,” MicroFinanza issued social ratings of A+ to Kazakhstan’s KazMicroFinance and BB+ to Komida, Faten and ACME. Under license from the Smart Campaign of US-based Accion’s Center for Financial Inclusion, MicroFinanza certified the client protection practices of Georgia’s Credo and Morocco’s Fondation Attawfiq.
