Social Performance Audit Tool

This tool attempts to assess the social performance of an MFI. Using a "process auditing" approach, this tool answers the following question: To what degree do the internal processes promote fulfillment of the MFI's stated social mission? This tool also assesses the MFI's performance in relation to its corporate social responsibility, particularly in terms of its relationship with and impact on staff, clients, the local community, and the environment. This assessment is performed by auditors who then author a final social audit report.
