Abstract: This study aims to modify the model proposed by the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP) and amended by Nanayakkara in order to assess the performance of Sudanese microfinance institutions (MFIs) in terms of reducing poverty, social performance and financial sustainability. The primary data was collected by the means of a questionnaire and the secondary data was obtained from the records of the MFIs. Although the findings illustrate a good overall performance for the selected MFIs, however, there is a variation in their performance level. This study contributes to the available literature by closing the gaps left in CGAP and Nanayakkara models by adding incidence of poverty as a new dimension, portfolio at risk as an indicator for the financial sustainability and female clients as a proxy for the depth of outreach. Moreover, this study contributes to the available empirical literature by exploring the overall performance of Sudanese MFIs.
