About Microfinance Label  
 
 

WHY A LABEL?

The primary objective of the LuxFLAG Microfinance Label is to reassure investors that the MIV actually invests, directly or indirectly, in the Microfinance sector. Investing indirectly means that the MIV can, rather than giving direct loans to Microfinance Institutions (MFIs), invest into other MIVs themselves investing more than 50% in Microfinance.
