Microfinance Insitutions in focus02.07.2012
The microfinance industry has taken big steps forward in the last couple of years to better serve their clients. The Client Protection Principles for microfinance and the accompanying Smart Campaign have been introduced to protect clients, businesses, and the industry as a whole.
The austrian based asset manager Absolute Portfolio Management (APM) offers two „Dual Return – Vision Microfinance“ funds, endorses the Smart Campaign and has incorporated the client protection principles into their investment criteria and due diligence. However, APM wanted to double-check how the Principles are employed at the microfinance institutions that the Vision Microfinance funds invest in.
For this, APM spoke to Mrs. NurhayrahSadava, Chief Executive Officer of microfinance institution Thaneakea Phum in Cambodia (TPC). Mrs. SADAVA has over 14 years of experience in managing, and in extending advisory services to microfinance institutions and rural banks in the Philippines, Uganda, Tanzania, Mozambique, Ghana, and Ethiopia.
