Concluding months of research and analysis, MFTransparency’s dataset for Mozambique went live in February, 2012. We are pleased to share transparent pricing data for this country for the first time in the history of the Mozambican microfinance market.

We would like to thank everyone for their support shown for this Initiative, especially the microfinance institutions who voluntarily participated and submitted their data.

Their participation truly demonstrates their institution’s commitment to client protection and contributes to the sustainable growth of the microfinance industry in Mozambique. We would also like to thank the microfinance network in Mozambique, AMOMIF, for its assistance with the Initiative, and the project funder MasterCard Foundation.

The following presentation provides an overview and analysis of the dataset. In the video, MFTransparency’s CEO, Chuck Waterfield, presents the pricing dynamics in the Mozambican microfinance market, using actual pricing data collected from microfinance institutions in Mozambique.

Após meses de pesquisa e análise, o conjunto de dados de MFTransparency para Moçambique foi publicado em linha em Fevereiro de 2011. Temos a satisfação de compartilhar dados de preços transparentes para este país pela primeira vez na história do mercado de microfinanças moçambicano.

Agradecemos a todos que apoiaram esta Iniciativa, principalmente às instituições de microfinanças que participaram voluntariamente e submeteram os seus dados. 

Sua participação demonstra verdadeiramente o compromisso dessas instituições com a proteção do cliente e contribui ao crescimento sustentável da indústria de microfinanças em Moçambique. Também agradecemos à rede de microfinanças moçambicana, AMOMIF, por seu apoio a esta Iniciativa, e ao financiador do projeto, a Fundação MasterCard.

A seguinte apresentação fornece uma visão geral e uma análise do conjunto de dados. No vídeo, o CEO de MFTransparency, Chuck Waterfield, apresenta as dinâmicas de preços no mercado de microfinanças moçambicano, usando dados de preços atuais fornecidos diretamente pelas instituições de microfinanças em Moçambique.

About the enabling APR & EIR Program:

 

The Transparent Pricing Initiative in Mozambique is part of a broader project funded by the MasterCard Foundation and known as the enabling APR & EIR Program (enablingAfrica to Price Responsibly & Educate on Interest Rates). This project began in August 2010 with Malawi and continued with Uganda, Rwanda, South Africa, Ghana, Tanzania, Zambia and Mozambique. In each of these countries, MFTransparency collects and publishes data on the interest and fees charged on microfinance loan products in order to calculate their accurate, true prices (Effective Interest Rates). As part of the enabling APR & EIR Program, MFTransparency also conducts training seminars, offers technical assistance to financial institutions, facilitates discussion on policy for pricing disclosure and client protection and produces educational materials tailored to the specific needs of different stakeholder groups, including financial education programs for borrowers.
