CGAP-MIX 2008 Eastern Europe and Central Asia Microfinance Analysis and Benchmarking Report

While this report illustrates the unique characteristics of the region as a whole, it is important to bear in mind that significant differences exist among the sub-regions and countries of Eastern Europe and Central Asia. A central theme of the report is to address this variety in the levels of microfinance development and provide an overview of the key trends in the general level of development, policy environment, funding sources, external investments and the performance of microfinance institutions.
