The 2023 MFI Index

The Microfinance Index is a groundbreaking financial inclusion initiative that provides high-quality, comparable impact data for the microfinance industry, driven entirely by client voices. This annual initiative has expanded to collect more than 1 million unique global data points in 2023.

The 60 Decibels Microfinance Index is live!

The 2023 Microfinance Index includes data from more than 114 participating financial service providers (FSPs) and is supported by 32 Partners. Now in its second year, the 2023 Microfinance Index has surveyed 32,000+ microfinance clients in 32 countries focusing specifically on clients in Cambodia, Ecuador, India, Indonesia and Uganda. This year’s survey gathers quantitative and qualitative data along six key dimensions of impact, including Access, Business Impact, Household Impact, Client Protection, Resilience, and Agency.

The data behind the Index is available now via three new paid tools and our public report can be downloaded here.
