Track A Revolution
Microcredit Summit Campaign
Microcredit is a revolution in banking that lifts millions out of poverty. For nine years, the Campaign has successfully collected data on the reach of this movement and published it in its annual State of the Microcredit Summit Campaign Report. The Campaign will leverage its global network of more than 3,000 microfinance institutions and focus on reaching 175 million of the world’s poorest families with microcredit by 2015, affecting 875 million family members.
Your donation will fund the research team that annually collects, verifies and publishes the most comprehensive count of microfinance clients in the world. The report profiles the institutions that are providing a hand up and not a hand out to the world’s poorest people. This is the only data of its kind and is used by UN agencies and other global institutions. Over the nine years of the Campaign’s existence so far, the total number of microcredit clients has grown from 13.5 million to 113 million. With your support, that number will grow even further.
