MIX combines data from three sources for detailed information on the number of microfinance institutions and the number of clients that exist in developing markets. In discussing the market penetration of microfinance institutions throughout the developing world, hard data can be difficult to come by. MIX combines data from our own database (MIX Market and the MicroBanking Bulletin), the Microcredit Summit Campaign, and the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) for comprehensive figures on market coverage. This downloadable file was updated Dec. 31, 2008 to reflect the most recent performance figures.
