Microfinance consensus guidelines

June 2003 - October 16, 2012

 

Microfinance consensus guidelines of the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP) are developed by CGAP in cooperation with other organizations working in financial inclusion. They establish standards and accepted terms and definitions in microfinance. These guidelines are published in final form only after consensus is reached among players across the whole spectrum of the industry.

 

Some issues are available in Spanish, French, Arabic, Russian, and Chinese.
