Who We Are?

The Pakistan Microfinance Network (PMN or ‘the Network’), the national association for retail players in the microfinance industry, was established as an informal group by industry practitioners in 1997, under the name Microfinance Group-Pakistan [MFG-P]. At the time, the group was focused on coordinating dialogue and lateral learning opportunities between members. Over time, with the increase in the nature and level of activities, and membership, the setup was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission [SECP] in April 2001 under the Companies Act. It has since been known as the Pakistan Microfinance Network. Currently the network strength stands at 46 Microfinance Providers including Microfinance Banks (regulated by SBP) and Non-Bank Microfinance companies (regulated by SECP).
