MFTransparency presents on “How Much is Too Much” at SPTF Panel in Jordan
In June 2012 the Social Performance Task Force (SPTF) held their 2012 Annual Meeting, Dead Sea, Jordan, to discuss progress made in the previous year, debate pressing issues, and to discuss in further detail particular areas of interest and expertise.
MFTransparency’s Chuck Waterfield attended the event, presenting as part of a panel on growth, profit and compensation levels – all features of aggressive business practices that put the interests of business owners above their clients. His presentation questioned how responsible the motive for profit is when all wealth generated by microfinance comes directly from those living at the bottom of the pyramid, proposing the question “How much is too much?”
The presentation below is a significantly expanded version of what Chuck Waterfield presented in Jordan. A screencast of this powerpoint is also available in the resources section of the website, where there is also the opportunity to add your comments and responses.
