CERISE and SPTF have created, with the support of their membership, the SPI4, a universal social performance assessment tool that integrates emerging industry social performance standards. MFIs can use the SPI4 as a self-assessment tool, or with the assistance of someone trained in the SPI. This blog post was originally published by Truelift on July, 29 2015.


The Truelift Indicators Tool has been streamlined and incorporated into the SPI4 as the pro-poor module. The SPI4 is a universal social performance assessment tool that integrates emerging industry social performance standards (Read more about the SPI4).

The streamlined SPI4 Truelift pro-poor module not only significantly reduces the number of indicators that need to be answered, it also contains guidance and examples of compliance for each indicator, easing practitioner completion of the self-assessment.

Completed SPI4 Truelift pro-poor modules can be still be submitted to Truelift by emailing the Excel file to info[at]truelift.org with the subject “Institution Name: SPI4 Truelift pro-poor module” to get verified and recognized as an Aspirant Milestones institution.

Download and complete the Truelift pro-poor module in the SPI4.
