Last week we introduced the Smart Campaign, formerly the Campaign for Client Protection. During our teleconference to introduce the campaign we discussed the past and future of the campaign. Over the past week three blogs have taken the opportunity to reflect on the campaign. The Connecting Women blog noted the tools the campaign has already created. This included the Client Protection Questionnaire and Self-Assessment Guide. Likewise, the Microfinance Insights blog underscored the need for client protection for both MFIs and investors. They also observed client protection helps distinguish good lenders. The MicroCapital blog described not only the development of the Smart Campaign, but how one MFI in Nicaragua is already implementing the Client Protection Principles that campaign endorsers support.
Stay tuned for the latest about The Smart Campaign.
