We are passionate about changing people’s lives by facilitating social change through investment. We want to achieve impact: by creating more sustainable futures for our borrowers which enable them to maximise their social impact; and in our ability to recruit more investors and depositors. That’s what makes our team get up in the morning!
And we are committed to measuring this impact. We have plenty of anecdotal evidence about how our loans can make a vital difference to our borrowers at a vital moment in their development. But we want to formalise our evidence gathering, in order to show more tangibly how our activities are benefiting individuals, organisations and the charitable sector in general.
We are currently devising a more formal reporting system, to define what data we require and how this will be collected, analysed and shared with our stakeholders. We expect this to be implemented later in 2009.
