Introduction

In its endeavor to ensure that the Zimbabwe microfinance sector keeps abreast if not ahead of the pack, ZAMFI has secured support for training from reputable international institutions in Belgium –Microfact, which is a joint initiative of ADA and BRS. These organizations offer practical training workshops on financial evaluation of MFIs based on microfinance Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)

The training course is organized jointly with ZAMFI, the host organization which will provide local logistics while technical training will be delivered by certified Microfact trainers.

Course Objective

The general objective of the workshop is to give MFIs an internationally recognized insight into the actual financial and social situation of their own organizations and their position in the market of microfinance. This peer-to-peer learning workshop will give better insights on financial performance. Specific attention will be given to the communication about the financial performance with all stakeholders of an MFI (clients, staff, board, investors, etc.)

Workshop Structure And Methodology

The 3 days-workshop will include:

  • Analyzing performance in microfinance - the microfinance key performance indicators in the following areas: Portfolio Quality, Efficiency and Productivity, Financial Management, Profitability and sustainability and Social Performance
  • Enhance the skills and capacity of management in interpreting ratios, analyzing financial trends, positioning themselves within the industry (benchmarks) and identifying key areas of risk to mitigate
  • How to use the MFI Factsheet tool in your day-to-day management and in your communication with the stakeholders.

Target Participants

This workshop is intended for the (financial) decision makers of Microfinance Institutions, typically the finance officers, accountants, risk officers and credit operation managers. An understanding of basic accounting principles and fundamental microfinance principles is required.
