VisionFund Cambodia receives SMART Certification

Wednesday, 04 May 2016

VisionFund Cambodia, which is a part of VisionFund International’s global network of microfinance institutions was recently conferred the ‘Smart Campaign Client Protection Certification’.

This is a recognition of the organisation´s alignment of their management systems, policies and processes with the SMART Campaign’s Client Protection Principles and the strong commitment from management to promote growth and institutional development within a client protection framework.

Client Protection Principles (CPPs) are a globally recognized framework for ensuring client protection. Adhering to this framework helps financial services providers minimize harm to clients. By becoming Smart Certified, an institution demonstrates that it puts the CPPs into practice.  When institutions follow the Client Protection Principles, the whole sector benefits including financial service providers, investors, regulators, and most of all, clients.

VisionFund Cambodia commenced operations in 1993 and today serves over 267,000 borrowers through 128 branches.
