Entry into green finance sector brings new opportunities and potential benefits but is not without challenges. It is a new line of business for most microfinance institutions which requires changes in internal operational procedures, financial products, and credit assessment methods.
At this point, many microfinance institutions that are unfamiliar with the green finance methodologies perceive it as risky and difficult to enter. As a result, many micro and small-sized enterprises (MSEs) and individuals that are unlikely to be financed by the mainstream banks, remain underfinanced and constrained from achieving their full potential.
We therefore invite you to watch the webinar’s recording and consult the presentations.
