Our Team

Emmanuelle Javoy
Emmanuelle Javoy became Managing Director of Planet Rating in February 2008, after joining the Planet Rating team in May 2003. She has carried out rating missions on four separate continents, and has overseen more than 200 microfinance rating reports, giving her an unrivaled, in-depth perspective of MFI operations before, during, and after some of the major crises that have afflicted microfinance markets, including in Bosnia, Nicaragua, and Morocco. This experience has led her to develop tools that would help Planet Rating’s analysts better assess the degree of market saturation and the potential for a credit crisis – work that culminated in the creation of MIMOSA 1.0. Since January 2014, Emmanuelle left Planet Rating and currently works at the microfinance investment fund, responsAbility.
Daniel Rozas
Daniel Rozas is one of the leading researchers of microfinance crises and over-indebtedness. Besides co-developing MIMOSA 1.0, Daniel developed one of the first models to estimate microfinance market capacity, which he used to show that Andhra Pradesh had already developed a severe microfinance bubble a year prior to the crisis. In addition, Daniel is currently conducting an IFC study on the Lessons Learned from the Morocco Crisis, adding to his earlier work on the subject (Weathering the Storm, 2011; Throwing in the Towel, 2009). Previously, Daniel learned about credit bubbles first-hand during his work at the US mortgage investment company Fannie Mae during 2001-08.
