Abstract

The article draws on the rationale and concept of the European Code of good Conduct for Microcredit Providers which was intended to set out good practice guidelines that will better enable the sector to face the challenges of accessing longterm finance, maintaining and raising the quality of services and moving towards sustainability. The author argues that there are a number of issues that should be resolved before any work begins on the clauses. Among those as described in the article is a process to manage non-compliance, standards to drive up performance, avoidance of working at the speed of the poorest performer and the need of transparent and standardized measures of performance
