SOCIAL PERFORMANCE IS A PRACTICAL APPROACH, WHICH ADVOCATES PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT THAT PRIORITIZES THE SOCIAL AS WELL AS FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE OF AN MICROFINANCE INVESTMENT. ATTAINING SOCIAL OBJECTIVES DOES NOT HAPPEN HAPHAZARDLY: AS WITH FINANCIAL OBJECTIVES, THEY REQUIRE A DELIBERATE STRATEGY AND A CONSCIOUS EFFORT TO MONITOR AND MANAGE IMPLEMENTATION. IN THE LIGHT OF COMPETING ORGANIZATIONAL PRIORITIES, AND THE EFFECTIVE SYSTEMS NEEDED TO SET FINANCIAL OBJECTIVES AND MANAGE PERFORMANCE TOWARDS MEETING THESE, IT IS LIKELY THAT DAY-TO-DAY DECISION-MAKING WILL FAVOR FINANCIAL RATHER THAN SOCIAL PERFORMANCE. IT IS THEREFORE NECESSARY FOR MFIS TO TAKE A MORE DELIBERATE APPROACH TO THE MANAGEMENT OF SOCIAL PERFORMANCE, INTEGRATING SOCIAL PERFORMANCE CONCERNS INTO THEIR OVERALL STRATEGIC AND OPERATIONAL PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS.
