Summary This study provides a framework for the evaluation of microfinance organizations, applied as an example to the two best-known microfinance organizations in the world, BancoSol of Bolivia and the Grameen Bank of Bangladesh. It shows how to adapt existing evaluation frameworks (for example, economic benefit-cost analysis) to the particular application of microfinance organizations. This is a major area of interest because microfinance is rapidly becoming the major development tool in first-world/third-world development assistance
