LAPO as a pro-poor development organization did not transform into a microfinance bank. What happened was that in 2010, the organization set up a microfinance bank and transferred the bulk of its microfinance operations to the new institutional vehicle. LAPO as a non-profit organization is still involved in the provision of a range of social and economic empowerment services particularly in rural communities. We came under regulation because we are convinced that the future and development of microfinance is in an appropriate and enabling regulatory environment.
