This event does not repeat

Microvision is Microfact's new tool, which will allow MFIs to turn their business plan and social and financial objectives into five-year financial projections. The tool provides a general framework for strategic and operational planning, but it also models the impact of different parameters on the MFI's overall activity. Therefore, it should help MFIs make informed decisions in order to achieve and balance their social and financial goals (DIM 6 of the USSPM - https://sptf.info/universal-standards-for-spm/universal-standards).

The training will be provided in English by Chuck Waterfield, and is dedicated to consultants or experts in microfinance who plan to provide technical assistance to MFIs on these topics.

Microfact is a joint initiative of ADA and BRS to strengthen the financial and social performance of microfinance and micro-insurance institutions.

Event location : Leuven, Belgium

Cost: 2000 Euros
