This paper tackles the funding challenges that both national and international microfinance institutions (MFIs) face in Myanmar. The 2011 Microfinance Law has criteria that are interpreted by several MFIs, both national and international, to be restricting their access to funding. This paper explains how both national and international MFIs are currently funded and what funding challenges they face. It presents possible ways these challenges could be tackled - in particular how a Market Development Facility might help to fill funding gaps in the market.
