state of the microfinance industry

Market position

State of the Microfinance Industry
  • Dynamic development over the last 5 years
  • Rapid professionalisation of top institutions
  • Increasing access to international capital markets for top institutions (although still requiring support by public institutions)
  • Mushrooming of wholesale investors in debt and (increasingly) equity
  • BUT: Concentration in ~100 institutions, usually not more than 1-3 per country

>> Industry is far from mainstreaming on supply side


Market position

  • Management capacity is the key bottleneck
  • Size matters: MFIs with access to international networks will be the winners
  • From an investor‘s point of view, there will be increasing competition for the top MFIs

>> A strategic link between management capacity and solvent investors will be the key advantage for both the MFI and the investors

>> This is why AccessHolding was established
