The Microfinance Council of the Philippines, Inc. (MCPI) evolved out of a USAID-funded project entitled “Developing Standards for Microfinance Project” (DSMP) that started in mid-1996 and continued until the end of 1999. The MFIs that were part of the DSMP decided to form an association or network and the resulting organization, MCPI, was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as a non-stock corporation in June 1999. In 2004, MCPI merged with the Philippine Network for Helping the Hardcore Poor (PHILNET), a microfinance association focused on Grameen replicators in the Philippines. Since then, MCPI has grown to comprise 59 institutions, including 46 practitioners, 2 regional councils and 11 support institutions. It is estimated that MCPI members account for at least 75 percent of the total active outreach of the microfinance sector in the Philippines.

Advocate poverty reduction and social protection in the Philippines by promoting ethical and inclusive financial and non-financial services.
Advance their capacity to serve poor households in a sustainable, innovative, and client-responsive manner.

The Argentina Microcredit Institution Network (RADIM) began its development in 2004, within the framework of the "Ser Solidario" program promoted by the Telefonica Foundation. This program brought together a diverse group of microfinance institutions--operating with different scales and methodologies, but undoubtedly working towards the same goal--for the first time. Under these circumstances the microfinance institutions (MFIs) realized their need and desire to form an arena in which they could exchange experiences and information. From this initial encounter and the informal group that followed came the possibility to incorporate new participants. With these new participants, the group began to analyze if conditions were favorable for advancing towards a formalization of what had started out as a friendly exchange between peer institutions. The mission of RADIM is to allow the people of Argentina greater access to credit and accumulation of capital. By creating a group of self-sustaining microfinance institutions, RADIM hopes to support development and human advancement with professionalism and transparency, in regards to both the recipients of the microcredit and the other partner organizations. Its primary objective is to help its members by harmonizing their strategies, articulating programs in their best interests, and aiding in their institutional growth. In accordance with this mission, RADIM also works towards the improved planning and training of MFIs and actively represents these institutions in dialogs with the state and with civil society.20048 Argentinian MFIshttp://www.reddemicrocredito.org/index.php/quienes-somosCredit Advisors / Promoters, Average controls, MFI support areas, Centralized areas / Managers / Directors, INFOCREDYes, RADIM partner INFOCRED is a company specialized in the collection and distribution of information related to the fulfillment of credit obligations contracted by natural and legal persons in the national microfinance system.

Banco Credicoop was established in 1979 through the merger of 44 Argentine credit unions. This was motivated largely by the adverse effect Economy Minister José Alfredo Martínez de Hoz's Financial Entities Law of 1977 had on this sector. The policy encouraged commercial banks in Argentina to offer high-yield, exotic investments by extending the Central Bank's guarantee to losses accrued from these financial vehicles. This practice collapsed between 1980 and 1982, however, and hundreds of unregulated, non-banking financial institutions, as well as numerous banks, closed. Today, Banco Credicoop is Argentina's eleventh-largest bank by total assets and ninth-largest by deposits (US$2.8 billion);Nearly all of this is accounted for by its over 670,000 members, and Credicoop maintains 244 branches.The institution is organized as a credit union, and operates as a non-profit cooperative. The mission of the Banco Credicoop is to promote democracy in the financial sector. Each member is given one vote at all shareholder meetings, and the top ten depositors account for less than 10% of deposits. It is also a lender in a country where domestic credit is difficult to access, holding a net loan portfolio of nearly US$1.7 billion (3.5% of the domestic total). Loans to small and medium businesses accounted for 70% of this, and the credit union holds 5% of the nation's domestic loans to this sector. The credit union provides personal and business financial and accounting services; since 1980, it has issued Cabal, the only cooperatively-managed credit card in Argentina. The group also manages the Previsol Pension Fund and numerous insurers. Credicoop is a standing member of the International Co-operative Alliance.1979670,000 +NoRetail Banking

Ghamfin was an informal network of institutions and individuals that operate within Ghana's Microfinance Industry.

This Network evolved from the concern of some Ghanaian Microfinance Institutions (MFIs) for the development of best practices in delivery of microfinance services. Their concern and initiative was promoted by a World Bank sponsored action research project, which sought to identify for wider application, innovative techniques of financial services delivery that had been successful in improving access of micro enterpreneurs to financial services.
