Attract investors to your MFI via the ATLAS database

ATLAS is a validated, global microfinance database that contains information on financial service providers’ (FSPs) pricing, client protection as well as social and financial performance. The database provides subscribing FSPs with benchmarking tools to compare themselves to other FSPs around the world and enables them to generate standardised reports for investors and other stakeholders. 

ATLAS also offers benefits for international networks, investors, professional associations and universities. For example, ADA uses ATLAS as a complementary reporting tool for giving investment advice: data from the factsheets on various MFIs which are supported by the Luxembourg Microfinance and Development Fund (LMDF) is uploaded in the portal and in return ADA has access to consolidated portfolio reports and benchmarks. 

More importantly for MFIs, the ATLAS portal is also used by several international investors to get to know microfinance institutions and find new investment opportunities. MFIs can therefore use ATLAS to increase their international visibility and at the same time access interesting regional market benchmarks.  

A free and simple signup procedure 

To be included in the ATLAS database, simply declare the willingness of your MFI to share your factsheet data on the portal. For details, please contact the ATLAS team (Lucia Spaggiari | MFR, Alasdair Lindsay-Walters | MFR ). 

Please note that any data shared on ATLAS is only available to subscribers and will not be accessible to the general public.
