This slide deck is related to CGAP’s COVID-19 Briefing “Microfinance Solvency and COVID-19: A Call for Coordination” and to CGAP’s broader efforts to assess the financial impacts of COVID-19 on the microfinance sector.

As part of CGAP’s efforts to understand the potential impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the financial stability of the microfinance sector, CGAP commissioned MFR to conduct an analysis of A) the impact of the pandemic on MFI liquidity, portfolio quality, and solvency through the end of 2020 and B) forward looking stress tests, with solvency scenarios for the microfinance sector. The analysis was based on A) data collected through CGAP’s PULSE Survey and on B) data included in MFR’s Atlas platform. This slide deck presents the summary of that analysis.
