Capacity building needs of social finance providers

MFC aims at building capacity of members and partners for mission driven, sustainable microfinance, concerned with climate protection issues, fostering social and digital inclusion. Over the year 2022, MFC used its interactions with members and partners to map the needs of social finance providers and to identify viable solutions. It has been achieved through the following activities:

  • Meetings, interviews, and emails exchange within the MFC Capacity Building Action Group, which gathered MFIs, Social Enterprise Finance Providers, Investors, support organizations, associations and consultants providing services to MFIs and social enterprise finance providers.
  • Technology Action Group, which discussed specifically the capacity building needs in digitalization
  • Trends, Good Practice and Clients Needs Action Group provided inputs for the financial providers gaps related to providing training and advice to microentrepreneurs.
  • Advisors Action Group, which provided inputs focused on understanding of the major trends and best practices influencing the work of MFC

Based on the above, MFC identified a wide range of capacity building services to be delivered to the sector within the next year. This is work in progress and it will be continued in 2023.
