The latest issue of the MicroBanking Bulletin includes MFI benchmark tables that reflect the onset of the global economic slowdown and financial crisis. Almost 1100 MFIs are benchmarked - the most robust data set to date from MIX - and they collectively served 74 million borrowers with 38 billion USD in loans. Feature articles cover social performance, the need for pricing transparency, issues surrounding savings, and new financial ratios for microfinance reporting.
