Abstract: The Dutch Microfinance Offer covers a wide range of institutions: from traditional donors to commercial investors. Through a combination of values and convictions, ambitions and a vision of the future they all strive to balance the social and financial return of their investments. This study evaluates the Dutch Offer and highlights the trends and initiatives that will be decisive in improving social performance. The purpose of the report is to address the opportunities and challenges they currently face. ING itself will use the findings to refine its social and commercial strategy with regard to microfinance. NPM will discuss the findings with its members. And by sharing the conclusions, the intention is to provide input for the debate on how to improve contributions to the microfinance sector.
