Microfact has created a whole range of free tools for MFIs:
MFI Factsheet is a free tool used to monitor and analyse an MFI's financial and social performance. After entering the MFI's financial data and additional details concerning its organisation, MFI Factsheet calculates the ratios and displays the MFI's financial and social performance, as well as key indicators, in graphical form to make performance analysis easier.
MFI Factsheet BCEAO
MFI Factsheet BCEAO is a version of the MFI Factsheet Microfinance developed specifically for the Member States of the BCEAO (Central Bank of West African States). The tool includes the BCEAO prudential indicators and enables MFIs in the subregion to generate financial reporting recognised by the competent authorities.
Microvision is a tool developed for the elaboration of financial and social projections for small and medium-sized microfinance institutions (MFIs). The tool allows them to make simplified projections over a 5-year period.
By entering data manually or importing them from MFI Factsheet and adding assumptions, MFIs obtain projections of their financial statements as well as financial and social indicators.
