We examine the need for regulatory reform of Microfinance Institutions (MFIs) in Kosovo. On its substance, this paper highlights the prevailing importance of a regulatory reform that enables transformation of MFIs incorporated as Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to Joint Stock Companies (JSC) and the respective implications. In doing so, the paper highlights a wide range of challenging issues related to the regulation and supervision of MFIs with careful reflections carried out and strategic decisions considered. Intrinsic and extrinsic challenging issues are investigated in the context of local market settings and circumstances with a great deal of consideration of international standards and best practices on regulation and supervision of MFIs.
