About

MicroRate was the first microfinance rating agency dedicated to evaluating performance and risk in microfinance institutions (MFIs) and microfinance funds, also known as microfinance investment vehicles (MIVs). As the oldest and most well-respected organization of its kind, MicroRate has conducted over 550 ratings of 200+ MFIs throughout Latin America, Africa, Europe, and Central Asia.  MicroRate is a leading social rater and has also become the largest MIV evaluator in the industry.

The entities evaluated by MicroRate span the entire spectrum of the microfinance industry, ranging from large banks to small NGOs, including many of the world’s leading MFIs, as well as some of the largest and smallest microfinance funds.

MicroRate was the first microfinance rating agency to be formally approved by CGAP and the     Inter-American Development Bank.  MicroRate has also worked with the Gates Foundation,   Omidyar Foundation and Citi Microfinance. Since its inception in 1997, no other organization has a better understanding of microfinance risk and return than MicroRate.

MicroRate adamantly remains independent from any connections that could jeopardize its objectivity. MicroRate is a private company, based in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area (USA) with subsidiaries in Lima (Peru) and Casablanca (Morocco).
