Commitment to Action

Developing MFI Social Performance Scorecard & Ratings

Commitment by

The Moody's Foundation

In 2010, Moody's, one of the world's leading sources for credit ratings, research, and risk analysis, committed to develop a scorecard and standardized rating for assessing the social performance of microfinance institutions (MFIs). The social performance rating will consider items such as client protection principles, client service, social impact measurement, and governance. As part of this process, Moody's will work with investors and MFIs to develop an understanding how social performance is assessed, create customized social performance tools, and publish research on how the industry assesses social performance. Moody's will work with a consortium of partners including The Social Performance Task Force, Grameen Bank, Women's World Banking, Blue Orchard, The MIX Market, Deutsche Bank, and ImpAct to design and develop the scorecards.
