Cross-border funding for microfinance has increased over the past four years, reaching at least US$24 billion in commitments by December 2010. This estimate includes commitments from public and private funders supporting microfinance in developing countries. While total commitments, or the stock of funding, increased gradually, the growth rates have come down from an estimated 30% (2008) to an estimated 13% (2010).
