Capacity Building Programs: Recognizing that not all learning happens in the training room, we offer structured, peer-to-peer learning activities exclusively to technical staff and managers of our microfinance partner institutions. These capacity-building activities leverage the participants' knowledge and experience and provide the opportunity to observe best practices, exchange ideas and apply key takeaways to the operations of their institutions. These activities include exposure visits to model institutions, workshops on industry topics and webinars led by subject matter experts.
