According to Microfinance Gateway,

“The methodology used to calculate the ranking is simple and is based on performance measures applicable to the microfinance industry, grouped into three pillars: outreach, efficiency and transparency. Each MFI gets a score determined by the combination of the indicators that comprise each pillar. To qualify in the top 100, MFIs need to maximize results in different areas, including improving the scope, minimize risk, improve transparency, reduce costs and improve profits.”
