We are proud to announce the Pro-Poor Principles! As the culmination of three years of work, the Pro-Poor Principles form the foundation for good practice in reaching and serving poor clients. They also serve as the core of our assessment framework that will help to identify those organizations doing the most to reach people living in poverty, to meet their needs, and to track progress over time.
The journey to the principles included alpha and beta testing, using a lengthy set of indicators which were reduced and refined. Many meetings and months of deliberation were conducted by our Technical Committee of industry experts. Performance against these standards will help to define the level of recognition that a microfinance institution can receive from the Seal of Excellence Secretariat.
In this continuing series of blog posts, we will elaborate on the path that brought us to these Pro-Poor Principles. The principles will inform both the learning agenda in our community of practice, as well as our methodology for determining organizations that will be recognized by the Pro-Poor Seal of Excellence.
