Social Performance Awards
Inclusion [Social Ratings] announces the launch of the first edition of the I[SR] Social Performance Awards in partnership with Positive Planet International.
This award honours the spirit of social responsibility within the microfinance community in South Africa as identified through the Universal Standards of Social Performance (USSP) for microfinance providers.
Microfinance providers that can demonstrate adherence to the USSPs in their day to day activities or through the recognition of the principles in their lending strategies and operations are eligible. The Award Panel seeks examples from members of the Micro Finance South Africa community, in the form of written stories or videos demonstrating how they have successfully applied the Universal Standards of Social Performance (detailed description of the standards can be found at: www.sptf.info).
The Award will be given to that microfinance institution, which in the opinion of the Awards Panel, best exemplifies that spirit. A Runner-Up Award will also be given.
