SPIR Announcement: Borvor Finance PLC

Anuncio de calificación de Desempeño e Impacto Social (SPIR)

Inclusion [Social Ratings] today released a newly assigned Social Performance & Impact Rating (SPIR) on Borvor Finance PLC (Borvor), a rural credit operator based in Battambang City, Cambodia.

Borvor’s Social Mission is “To provide affordable financial services to low-income families, especially women, responsive to their needs to improve their living standard.”

Inclusion [Social Ratings] assigned Borvor an SPIR rating grade of SPIR3, following remote due diligence of the organization’s operations and interviews with customers and staff. An SPIR3 rating indicates that an organization’s infrastructure and processes are consistent with a good likelihood of operating in the best interests of its customers, that this is among its highest priorities and that it attempts to manage the risk of causing adverse effect to its customers and other stakeholders.

Una calificación SPIR3 es consistente con una organización que:

se adhiere a las buenas prácticas en la mayoría de los factores clave de SPIR; 
demuestra que cuenta con sistemas de información adecuados, controles internos y procedimientos relacionados con la información proporcionada para el SPIR;
mantiene estándares razonables en términos de protección del cliente.
Inclusion [Social Ratings]’s SPIR on Borvor is based on Inclusion [Social Ratings]’s Social Performance Rating Methodology. An SPIR measures social performance on a fifteen-point scale, in which SPIR1+ is the highest grade and SPIR5-, the lowest.
