About MIX Market: The Microfinance Information Exchange, Inc. (MIX) is the leading business information provider dedicated to strengthening the microfinance sector. 

The organization’s core focus is to provide objective data and analysis on microfinance providers. In doing so, MIX promotes financial transparency in the industry and helps build the information infrastructure in developing countries. This addresses a key challenge for the microfinance industry: the lack of reliable, comparable and publicly available information on the financial strength and performance of microfinance institutions as well as their social impact.

MIX provides detailed financial and social performance information from microfinance institutions (MFIs), as well as business information from market facilitators and leading donor organizations and investors in microfinance. We do this through our online information exchange MIX Market (www.mixmarket.org) and through a variety of publications including the MicroBanking Bulletin and reports and analysis on regional and country level microfinance sectors.

MIX is a non profit organization incorporated in June 2002, with headquarters in Washington, DC, and regional offices in Peru, Senegal, India and Indonesia. MIX was founded by CGAP (Consultative Group to Assist the Poor), and is sponsored by Citi Foundation, Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation, IFAD, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
