Daniel Rozas, Senior Microfinance Expert, European Microfinance Platform (e-MFP)/MIMOSA
Daniel Rozas is a Senior Microfinance Expert at e-MFP, co-founder of the MIMOSA Project, and a consultant and researcher on a broad range of topics, including risk and crisis management, business strategy, market analysis, funding flows, and social performance. He has collaborated with many of the leading organizations in the sector, including research institutions, think-tanks, networks, rating agencies, and others.
Prior to his microfinance career, Daniel worked for the US mortgage investment company Fannie Mae during 2001-08. This first-hand experience with the extraordinary boom-and-bust cycle that took place in the US mortgage market during this period has been instrumental in shaping his perspective on how credit markets behave during bubble periods. In a widely-read blog, Daniel relied on publicly-available data to warn of a developing microcredit bubble in Andhra Pradesh, a state that one year later saw the largest microfinance crisis in history.
Daniel resides in Brussels, Belgium, and holds an MBA from the University of Maryland and an undergraduate degree in music from the Peabody Conservatory.
