CEO FORUM Peer Learning Workshop on Pricing in Microfinance before MFC Annual Conference 2019

Date: 28-29 May 2019

Location: Istanbul, Turkey

Topic: Pricing in microfinance

Setting interest rates and service charges is a central issue in microfinance program design. Effective pricing of financial services may to a great extent determine the short- and long-term success a microfinance institution (MFI). It is widely known that prices of microfinance services provided by MFIs are typically higher due to high operational costs of delivering the services. Increasingly, MFIs are being accused of overcharging their clients and not applying fair and transparent pricing.

The peer learning workshop will examine the pricing of microfinance loans from various perspectives: impact and growth of an MFI, disclosure and transparency, and consumer protection. Drawing on recent research in these areas, it will discuss how MFIs approach pricing challenges and how they find the balance between economic viability and social mission.

The workshop is intended for CEOs, Chief Credit and Risk Managers and CFO of microfinance organizations.
