However, some challenges remain to be un tackled, including: managing its assets in order to reaching out to rural areas in a sustainable manner; strengthening community based organizations so that they can become a viable option to reach poorer and more remote clients; developing new products more responsive to the needs of different client groups, including savings services, payment systems, emergency loans, housing loan products, investment loans, insurance products, agricultural loans, leasing, etc.; preparing MFIs for the transformation from NGOs to licensed microfinance providers; exploring and promoting commercial funding sources and reducing subsidization by donors; developing a stronger MFI network to enable effective coordination of the industry.
