Avoiding Overindebtedness with MIMOSA 2.0

A group of investors, including Triple Jump, have put their hands together to support the development of a much needed tool in the sector: MIMOSA 2.0, a tool that measures the risk of overindebtedness.

MIMOSA 1.0 was a prototype to show that such a metric is indeed possible, while MIMOSA 2.0 has been further developed in order to be a tool that can be used for decision-making. The framework of this tool consists in three components: credit penetration and capacity (which formulates the MIMOSA score) and a provisional score for credit card saturation to get a better understanding of the credit environment.

Additionally, MIMOSA 2.0 includes country reports with saturation scores at regional levels that can be a useful tool for investors to help define the growth strategy of its portfolio. Furthermore, it is also useful for regulators and financial service providers in their strategy planning.
