The Centre underwent its 6th international Rating Exercise and maintained excellent rating results, receiving an α- in the institutional rating category and a four (out of five) stars in the social performance rating category. The rating was carried out by MicroRate, the foremost international microfinance rating agency. The results show excellent product offering, robust solvency, efficient operations, strong corporate governance and transparency, as well as solid social and financial balance, despite the impact of the pandemic on the economy. The rating exercise also involved the second re-validation of the Centre’s Client Protection Principles (CPP) certification, and the results of the re-validation are expected in November 2021.
