Tools and Resources for Assessing Social Impact



GIRAFE is a tool that evaluates the performance and institutional risk of microfinance institutions (MFIs). It grades MFI on six areas: governance, information, risk management, activities and services, financing and liquidity, and efficiency and probability. The evaluation is based on the analysis of the MFI's financial performance via financial statements and portfolio quality reports. The evaluation also assesses the institution's management and information system, interviews board members, management team, staff (mainly credit officers) and clients.
