Community-based approaches are critical for achieving sustainable development goals that promise inclusion of the poor and marginalized sections of the society. These approaches are not only providing access to financial services, but also provide local support services to manage their livelihoods and lives. This course will focus on savings-led and member-owned models, such as Savings Groups, Village Savings and Loan Associations (VSLAs), Self-Help Groups (SHGs) & their federations, Financial Cooperatives, Credit Unions, Livelihood (producer) Organizations and other community owned institutions from across the world. The course is designed on the premise of ensuring inclusive growth besides access to financial services for the economically poor & marginalized communities.
This program is intended for senior-level managers from Africa and Asia, representing large scale Government programmes, NGOs, rural finance practitioners, MFIs and bankers, policy makers, regulators and government officials, trainers, and donors that link with CBMF organizations for financial inclusion. A participant with University degree and good working knowledge of English language and two year's work experience in microfinance is desirable.
