The Country Survey for Mozambique provides an overview of the microfinance industry in Mozambique. Outlining the national socio-economic, political and historic factors impacting the microfinance market, the Country Survey forms a valuable backdrop against which to examine Mozambique’s transparent pricing data.

The microfinance industry in Mozambique started in the form of projects financed by foreign development organizations such as the World Bank, the GTZ (Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit), CARE or World Relief. These appeared in the late 1980s and developed throughout the 1990s, leading to the creation of some of today’s leading national microfinance institutions.

The Country Survey provides context for this, looking at:

  • Political Overview
  • Macroeconomic Overview
  • Traditional Financial Sector
  • Financial Inclusion
  • Microfinance Institutions
  • Microfinance Regulation
  • The Cost of Borrowing
  • Consumer Protection
  • Challenges for the sector
