This information on the "climate for microfinance" in Asia and the Philippines provides context for the Opportunity International TSKI MFI's operations.
By examining TSKI's financial statements from 1998-2008, this case study explores whether or not there was any link between offering savings deposits and achieving greater financial sustainability.
Figure 1 depicts the change in ROA when TSKI did not offer savings to the period when it did offer savings.
From 1998-2002, when TSKI did not offer savings, its average ROA was -3.52%.
Figure 2 depicts the change in Operational Self-Sufficiency when TSKI did not offer savings to the period when it did offer savings.
From 1998-2002, when TSKI did not offer savings, its average Operational Self-Sufficiency was 91.4%.
ROA's change of signs demonstrates that TSKI transitioned from earning a negative return on its assets to a positive return on its assets once it switched to offering savings deposits.
Next, this case study investigates whether TSKI began to move away from the poorest as it expanded its service offerings to include savings.

It is interesting how TSKI's financial statements changed after switching to offering savings deposits.
