Today, microfinance is threatened by the risk of prioritizing short-term profitability over the long-term needs of clients. A number of stakeholders and investors are leading the way in placing equal or greater importance on social objectives and strategies that push the frontiers in social investing and inclusive finance.
This session will discuss how the industry can leverage tracking indicators and social performance measurement to attract investors that value measurable social impact through collaborations that drive both greater market efficiency and stronger outcomes on specific social objectives.
