MCWG 2016 Annual Report
The ten CEOs that comprise the Microfinance CEO Working Group (MCWG or “the Working Group”) are driving their organizations toward high standards in the delivery of responsible financial services and innovations and raising the bar for the microfinance sector as a whole. Jointly, this unique collection serves more than 89 million low-income clients across 87 countries, including more than 82.5 million clients through its 260 local affiliates and partners in 73 countries, as well as 6.5 million clients in 51 countries via savings groups. MCWG members include
those with concentrated regional presence throughout Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the Middle East, and those with strong global operations.
Since its inception in 2011, the MCWG has worked to drive the industry toward best practices for responsible, client-centered delivery of financial services by encouraging its local partners to lead by example. This commitment has been demonstrated by its willingness to support major social performance efforts led by groups such as the Social Performance Task Force (SPTF) and the Smart Campaign.
