Analysis of the Profile of non-profit Organizations Receiving Funding by a Microfinance Institution: the Case of Burundi

Marie-Goreth Nduwayo, Michel Sayumwe


In this study, we analyze the profile of burundian non profit organizations (NPOs) receiving funding from a microfinance institution. We focus on the concept of strategic alignment as developed by Henderson and Venkatram (1999) which assumes that the corporate performance is related to the management skills. We analyze the modes of operation of Burundian NPOs which benefit from microcredit. We observe that they reflect an appropriate financing strategy. In fact, our study concludes that the income-generating activity flows a well-defined profile that ensures an adaptation for the NPOs. While the microcredit institution has a financial role, it also contributes to satisfy basic needs for survival of the NPOs members.
