About InM Training
InM training provides a unique opportunity for the professionals of financial institutions including MFIs to gain hands-on knowledge and skills on contemporary issues in the domain of inclusive finance. Since the inception of training activities in 2009, InM has trained more than 20,500 microfinance practitioners at the field and headquarters level.
The Institute puts special thrust on need-based customised training, which requires standard and integrated training modules rather than organising prototype training. InM takes trainees competence into account in designing training programmes. The thrust of professionalism is to ensure that the newest insights are offered to meet individual and organizational needs.
Presently, Advanced Financial Risk Management Training courses are onboard to cater the specific needs of MFIs to avert losses due to delinquency.
