Background: Mohammed Yunus is the founder of the concept of microfinancing. His initial impetus to provide financing to individual small family owned businesses in India and elsewhere inspired a movement that has spread across the world with some controversy as to the real benefits of such financing. See the founder’s website for some background on microfinancing.
Scenario: You were recently hired by a nonprofit organization that is headquartered in Montreal, Canada. This organization, Beacon of Hope (BOH), had a mission of providing financing to businesses who wished to start a business in third world countries.

The first two countries they focused on were Angola and Ghana. After two years in operation, it has become apparent that a change is necessary. Choose either Angola or Ghana to evaluate the organization’s current process addressing the following concerns:

-Only 225 applications were received from prospects concerning each of the two countries. At the 2-year mark, the expectation was 1200 applications for each.
-The application processing time is taking 4–6 months. The original goal was 2 months.
-Only 100 applications have been approved for each country, and the average loan is $10,000.
-The most recent report shows that only 15% of the businesses funded are still in operation.
-Accessing the microfinancing funds has proven problematic using in-country banks.
-Accounting for the expenditure of funds by BOH has been difficult to track.
