How to pre-evaluate credit projects in ten minutes

The author describes a quick method for evaluating the first stages of a credit project. He lists three questions, designed to illicit unambiguous yes/no answers, which assess the project's governance (external control structure), its financial viability (internal organisation), and its attitude towards potential borrowers. Answers are scored and provide an easy indicator of the project's likelihood of success. See also Evaluation of microfinance projects, Feedback, Susan Johnson ([13]Volume 9, Number 4)
