The challenge is to design financial products that meet the needs of low-income populations while ensuring the sustainability of financial providers. Government loans for the poor often meet with high default rates, while insurance products encounter very low take-up. An estimated 2 billion working-age adults globally have no access to the types of formal financial services delivered by regulated financial institutions.

This one-week executive training is designed to enhance the collective capabilities of institutions by building individual knowledge and skills to achieve strategic goals. The program will allow microfinance managers, consultants and trainers to develop the theoretical and practical skills necessary to improve the performance of their organization.
