Financial Management for Microfinance Institutions

As a higher level course, the financial management course requires that participants understand financial analysis and are knowledgeable on financial performance industry standards. The course assists microfinance institutions in improving their financial performance through effective treasury management, asset-liability management and liquidity management. The course also includes sessions on projecting an organization’s future financial performance given its current financial performance level. Although the course is heavy on finance, emphasis is given to participants on the danger of mission drift or abandoning their social mission. Actual case studies gathered on field will be presented to highlight current practices of successful microfinance institutions.
