Annual Microenterprise Results Report to Congress Fiscal Year 2014

Speeches Shim

The Fiscal Year 2014 (FY 2014) USAID Microenterprise Results Reporting (MRR) responds to the annual reporting requirements of the Microenterprise Results and Accountability Act (MRAA) of 2004 (Public Law 108-484). The MRAA directs the Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to “submit to the appropriate congressional committees a report that contains a detailed description of the implementation of this title for the previous year.” Specifically, this report summarizes USAID’s investments and reach in microfinance and microenterprise development, and addresses the 12 reporting requirements included in the MRAA.

The report was authored by the Office of Microenterprise and Private Enterprise Promotion (MPEP) in the Bureau for Economic Growth, Education, and Environment (E3).

From November 2014 through January 2015, the survey team collected data from 76 USAID Missions and three USAID/Washington Bureaus. From January to May 2015, the survey team collected project data from 84 implementing partners. The survey captures data on approximately 90 percent of the funding, or $223.6 million of the approximately $255 million that USAID invested in microenterprise development activities in FY 2014.
