Completed Training Course
Training Courses, July 2017 – June 2018
During 2017-18, InM training activities targeted NGO-MFIs staff especially in credit operations, financial management, microenterprises, participatory managerial skills, risk management and monitoring of credit operations at the field level. These have mostly been organised for PKSF partner organisations (POs) and MRA-licensed MFIs. In addition, customised courses were arranged for interested NGO-MFIs. The course design of these trainings was need-based having standard and integrated modules as opposed to prototype training. In 2017-18, new tailor-made trainings have also been developed including specialised courses for the PKSF’s PACE Programme.
