Grameen Foundation Receives Moody’s Foundation Grant To Support Measurement of Global Poverty Efforts

Grameen Foundation today announced that it has received a grant from The Moody’s Foundation to enable poverty data to be used more effectively by social sector organizations to measure, track and report on their clients’ poverty levels using the Progress out of Poverty Index® (PPI®).

Double Bottom Line Business Case

Most economic development programs that aim to reach the poorest households have not been designed using a sustainable business approach. Instead, these programs have been developed as grants and charity-driven projects. While there is a role for grant-driven programs, organizations can also make sustainable business decisions to extend outreach to poorer populations in the medium to long term.

Grameen Foundation’s holistic approach to microsavings provides the framework and tools to develop and offer convenient, accessible, and secure poverty-focused savings programs while building sound financial, organizational, and operational practices that help transform microfinance institutions (MFIs) from credit-led to demand-driven institutions.
