Steve Wright is the new director of Grameen Foundation’s Social Performance Management Center.
Today, we are pleased to announce the launch of the Progress out of Poverty Index (PPI ) certification process. Through this new process, the Grameen Foundation will officially recognize organizations complying with Standards of Use for the PPI. Certified organizations will receive a seal of approval signaling that they are using the PPI correctly and they will be recognized on the Microfinance Information Exchange (MIX) beginning in January 2011.
This official roll-out of the certification program follows the earlier launch of the PPI Standards of Use, which are endorsed by key microfinance networks and investors, including Oikocredit, Catholic Relief Services and Plan International Asia.
