Creating a Risk Management Culture: Key Credit and Operational Risk Tools for MFI Managers

Effective risk management has become increasingly critical for microfinance institutions (MFIs) as the industry landscape has continued to evolve over the years.  Our program “Creating a Risk Management Culture: Key Credit and Operational Risk Tools for MFI Managers”, is designed to address this need. The program targets senior, non-risk MFI managers who are often excluded from risk trainings but are crucial for effective risk management. The training is designed to:

  • Raise awareness of key risk principles and tools

  • Manage key credit and operational risks in an integrated manner

  • Build a risk management culture

Global Advisory Solutions has developed the following materials for industry-wide use. These interactive eLearning modules and the risk management tool guides inform MFI managers of their responsibility in the risk management process and how they can contribute to an institution-wide awareness of risk.
