Boucher, Steve; Otsuka, Nobuyuki; Gutierrez, Claudia; Narita, Tetsuro , 2019

The Progress Out of Poverty Index (PPI) is a tool that allows a microfinance institution (MFI) to estimate the poverty rate of its clients. This document provides an in-depth analysis of the implementation and utilization of the PPI by MFIs in Latin America. The analysis is based on interviews with five MFIs in Peru and Ecuador that have adopted the PPI as well as interviews with a range of other relevant institutions including rating agencies, social investors and the PPI designer.
