DIAS, João Ferreira  e  PSICO, José Augusto Tomo. Social performance evaluation of the microfinance institutions in Mozambique. Economia Global e Gestão [online]. 2008, vol.13, n.2, pp.43-59. ISSN 0873-7444.

The microfinances are an instrument to overcome the financial restrictions of low income people so that their capacities can be developed. This activity of financial inclusion must be sustainable and can be income-producing. There are several studies about the impact of the microfinances on the beneficiary individuals and about the financial sustainability of the microfinance institutions (IMFs). The present study deals with a non-common subject: the social performance of the IMF, that is with real implementation of the IMF's mission. For this we used the instrument SPI developed by CERISE to evaluate the performance of the IMFs in Mozambique. This results show a geographical concentration in the main towns and an average social performance that lacks improvement. In comparison with the international results Mozambican's average is lower.
