As we prepare the site, we conduct activities to test out all the great new features and functionality on our site. The SEEP Network and Social Enterprise Associates join the Knowledge-Driven Microenterprise Development Team to host this activity and bring you new ways to contribute to the effectiveness of microfinance institutions.

This document is a working draft for public comment and review. The public comment period is open until July 18th, 2010, and seeks to build consensus within the microfinance community on the updated set of 35 ratios and four asset-liability management tables. The SEEP Network will release these updates in the forthcoming Microfinance Financial Reporting Standards (the Standards) as a revision to the 2005 document Measuring Performance of Microfinance Institutions: A Framework for Reporting, Analysis, and Monitoring, otherwise known as the SEEP Framework.
