Microfinance is constantly facing significant changes: microfinance products are being developed and modified by microfinance institutions (MFIs); more and more traditional financial institutions, banks, fintech and other organizations, such as credit unions, guarantee funds and mobile operators are getting involved in microfinance; national authorities are developing and tightening up regulations in order to facilitate and speed up further financial sector development.
