Abstract: This paper is about analyzing the performance of MFIs. Our study focuses on Arab MFIs in the MENA region. We chose 18 MFIs from 7 Arab countries in the MENA region namely : Tunisia ; Morocco ; Egypt ; Palestine ; Jordan ; Lebanon and Yemen. Our goal is to answer the following questions : Are Arab MFIs in the MENA region performing well ? What is the orientation of these institutions ? To answer these questions we followed a methodology that brings together two parties. The first step involves using the DEA method to evaluate the performance of the MFIs in our sample. The second step is to apply the PCA (principal component analysis) on the efficiency scores obtained from the DEA method, in order to determine the orientation of each entity examined.
