Of the 3,098 microfinance institutions that have reported to us since 1998, 1,045 are in sub-Saharan Africa, 1,119 are in Asia and the Pacific, and 672 are in Latin America and the Caribbean (Table 7). Note that when we conducted a comparison of our data with data from the MIX, we excluded smaller MFIs from the Campaign data whose combined outreach accounts for around 1% of the data for each of the three countries that we compared. This resulted in a net decrease of institutions reporting (892 Campaign MFIs subtracted and added 267 from the MIX).
Table 7: Regional Breakdown of Microfinance Data
(December 31, 2013) The data is heavily represented by outreach in Asia and the Pacific (88.7%), and in particular, in India (56.27%) and Bangladesh (16.97%).
