“Client Protection: Are We There Yet?” begins:
Since its launch, the Smart Campaign has made enormous strides toward ensuring that clients of microfinance would receive transparent, respectful, and prudent treatment. The Campaign is proud to now have more than 1000 institutions as endorsers and these organizations that serve over 40 million low-income people.
In the last year, at least 10 major microfinance investment funds managing over US$2 billion have integrated client protection into their due diligence and reporting.
The Campaign is a truly global effort. It is governed by a 28-member Steering Committee whose membership represents all facets and geographies of the sector and its work is accomplished through partnerships with virtually every facet of the industry.
