The key thrust of ADB assistance is to support the development of a market-oriented formal microfinance sector consisting of diversified financial institutions including commercial banks, financial cooperatives and microfinance institutions (MFIs), among others, that can provide a broad range of safe and affordable quality financial services to poor and low-income households and their microenterprises in a sustainable basis. ADB assistance focuses on (i) creating a policy environment conducive to microfinance, (ii) developing financial infrastructure, (iii) building viable institutions, and (iv) supporting pro-poor innovations.
