MicroRISK Alliance
United States Agency for International Development (USAID)

The microRisk Alliance has formulated the following real world case studies which serve to illustrate the positive impact of the MRA Principles in action. MicroRISK Alliance (MRA) is an innovative partnership model that is designed to engage microfinance risk management practitioners in a collaborative learning process to document and share findings on the risks facing the microfinance industry and help identify effective and replicable risk management practices and innovations. Combining its extensive experience of building public private alliances (GDA) and promoting knowledge management (microLINKS), USAID is facilitating a platform whereby public and private institutions can collaborate to bring about organic and systematic solutions to the common risks that are facing the industry. The Alliance aims to avoid market fragmentation in the search for solutions and will foster information sharing and inclusive discussions that are as dynamic and agile as the risks.
