The Microfinance CEO Working Group is a collaborative effort by a number of leading international organizations that promote microfinance around the world. The Microfinance CEO Working Group consists of the leaders of eight international microfinance organizations: Accion, FINCA International, Freedom from Hunger, Grameen Foundation USA, Opportunity International, Pro Mujer, VisionFund International, and Women’s World Banking.
In early 2011, an informal group of industry leaders began to meet to discuss the state of the microfinance sector as it matures and encounters new challenges. Participants quickly discovered a shared perspective on the future of the microfinance industry – one rooted in high standards, client orientation, and collective action.
The Working Group seeks to work together to support the positive development of its member organizations and the microfinance industry at large. Its members will advocate in favor of responsible microfinance practices and commit to upholding their organizations to the highest standards.
