State of the Campaign Report 2015
As of December 31, 2013, 3,098  microfinance institutions (MFIs) reported reaching 211,119,547 borrowers; this is the largest number ever reported. On the other hand, the total number of poorest clients with loans outstanding declined, for the third straight year, to 114,311,586. Of these poorest clients, 82.6%, or 94,388,701, are women. The Campaign received Institutional Action Plans (IAPs) from 172 MFIs in 2014 and added data from 267 MFIs from the MIX.
In this year’s report, we included data from from the MIX’s database for the first time. Both the MIX and the Campaign collect data on total borrowers and the gender of those clients. We have received data from a larger number of MFIs over the years, but in some cases, the data in the MIX is more current than what we have. This year we looked closely at three countries where the MIX data was more current data than ours for a significant number of MFIs (India, Bangladesh, and the Philippines). In this year’s report, we used this data in our totals.
Since the MIX does not uniformly collect data on the poorest, we had to estimate this number for the MFIs where we used MIX data. We used the country average for the percentage of total borrowers that were among the poorest from MFIs reporting to us in order to make this estimate. (In the case of India, we did not use the NABARD numbers to make this average calculation, since they are so large that they tend to distort any country averages.)
State of the Campaign Report 2014
As of December 31, 2012, 3,718 microfinance institutions reported reaching 203,672,249 clients, 115,584,445 of whom were among the poorest when they took their first loan. Of these poorest clients, 83.3 %, or 96,386,285, are women. Institutional Action Plans (IAPs) were submitted by 317 microfinance institutions (MFIs) in 2013.
State of the Campaign Report 2013
As of December 31, 2011, 3,703 microfinance institutions reported reaching 195,014,970 clients, 124,293,727 of whom were among the poorest when they took their first loan. Of these poorest clients, 82.7%, or 102,749,643, are women. Institutional Action Plans (IAPs) were submitted by 637 microfinance institutions (MFIs) in 2012.
 We excluded smaller MFIs from the Campaign data whose combined outreach accounts for around 1 percent of the data for each of the three countries. This resulted in a net decrease of institutions reporting (892 Campaign MFIs subtracted and added 267 from the MIX).
