Abstract: In this report the members of NPM discuss their joint position in the microfinance sector. The microfinance sector has developed significantly in recent years. With positive and negative effects. Millions of poor people now have access to financial services. However, over indebtness and exceptionally high profits are not in the interests of the poor. MFIs have to aim for both financial andsocial return. The sector needs more regulation and supervision and the client (the poor) protection and assistance.
