Community-Based Member-Owned Microfinance
Offered online for 16 weeks beginning February 24 and running through June 15, 2012.
This course provides member owned microfinance practitioners with current methods, case studies, peer dialogue, and a relevant field assignment to deepen their understanding and improve practice.
Applicants must have at least two years experience in community managed microfinance groups such as savings groups, village savings and loans associations, self-help groups, cooperatives and financial associations. Policy makers, donors and other key stakeholders may also apply, with the understanding that the course would provide them with a deeper perspective on practitioner issues and operations.
Quotes from former participant:
"The course has been very useful to me. Inasmuch as I have had countless years in working with organizations promoting savings-led microfinance, I have never been in class to get the theoretical grounding that the participation in this very practical course granted me."
"The research question that I chose was directly related with what I was doing. After the course, after my research, we changed the model that we were using. Very, very helpful."
