This study examines the effect of regulations on microfinance institutions in Nigeria and Zambia by focusing on the post regulation experiences and reflections of the microfinance institutions (MFIs) and their regulators. Based on in depth interviews with the Central Banks as regulators, MFI managers, practitioners and apex microfinance associations, the study finds that regulations in both countries have managed to professionalize the sector, but their effectiveness in augmenting the centrality of social goals to microfinance and MFIs remains doubtful. The poorly designed regulations are not only undermining social goals but also sending wrong signals to would be social investors, with implications for the social image of the industry.

That last argument is popular among Senate Republicans, but top conservative constitutional lawyer Charles Cooper urged them in a new Wall Street Journal op ed to disregard that flawed, illogical view and “judge the former president misconduct on the merits.” As far as the merits go, federal “court documents show that more than two dozen people charged in the attack specifically cited Trump and his calls to gather that day in describing on social media or in conversations with others why they decided to take action by coming to Washington,” The Washington Post reports.
