Microfinance Investment Intermediaries (MIIs) are investment entities where microfinance is one of the core investment objectives. They refer to a wide range of actors: microfinance investment vehicles (MIVs, intermediaries of public and private funds), holdings as well as other types of microfinance intermediaries. MIIs provide (directly or indirectly) debt, bonds or guarantees microfinance service providers or other MIIs. MIIs are not charities. They have different expectations, but they all aim to get their capital back at a profit.
