Opportunity Bank Serbia Social Performance Management (SPM)

What is Social Performance?

Social Performance is effective translation of an organization’s mission into practice in line with adopted social values.

In order to effectively translate its Mission into practice, OBS has set the following four social performance objectives:

  • Outreach to clients from rural areas of Serbia where financial services and scarce (financial inclusion), especially of small agricultural households with mixed agro production
  • Benefits to broader macroeconomic environment - creation of new and sustaining of existing jobs as a result of OBS loans
  • Outreach to low-income clients as well as facilitating and tracking clients’ transformation in terms of increased income and better quality of life as a result of OBS loans

Since beginning of 2014 OBS is measuring its social impact with regard to all its loan clients, in line with the adopted SPM methodology and through its Core Banking System. Regular reports are produced on a monthly basis for the bank’s management team and quarterly for the bank’s Board of Directors, which has also formed an SPM Committee which meets four times a year in order to analyze data and reports, as well as the bank’s progress in SPM and pass relevant decisions and recommendations for the bank's executive management team.
