ability of an MFI to conduct its operations in a scalable and sustainable manner.

The grading is assigned on an eight-point scale, with ‘mfR1’

a measure of the overall performance of an MFI on a broad

range of parameters under CRISIL’s MICROS framework.

It includes a traditional creditworthiness analysis using the CRAMEL

approach,modified to be applicable to the microfinance sector.

The acronym MICROS stands for Management, Institutional
