Watch SIFTA Webinar:  Impact Measurement and Management (IMM) & the SDGs for MFIs

Data on impact & SDGs become crucial aspects to attract interest from (impact) investors and funding – in order to underpin the relevance, effectiveness and attractiveness of investments in microfinance to address social and environmental issues. 


Microfinance and social economy finance providers have been the focus of lenders, funders, DFIs and other impact investors as they can contribute significantly to the social, economic and environmental impact which is crucially needed for the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. 

Join the webinar to broaden your practical knowledge of SDGs and indicators & targets you can use to measure the progress. During this 2 h webinar, we will discuss: 

  • regulations and major initiatives around impact measurement & management (IMM) that affect impact investors and MFIs 
  • tips and tools helping toalign one’s mission, goals and impact measurement with the SDGs 
  • how and where to find the right metrics?  

The webinar targets decision makers and people responsible for reporting and communicating the outcomes of microfinance and social enterprise finance providers.

Our experts from Agents from Impact, Manuela Fritzsch (Director of ESG Risks & Impact) and Andrij Fetsun (Founder & CEO) will share their experience on impact measurement and SDGs. Participants will also hear the expertise of BCR Social Finance from Romania with SDGs adoption and impact assessment methodology. Romanian Microfinance Association, one of the most active microfinance associations in Europe, will show the links between the existing impact indicators under the European Code of Good Conduct and SDGs, in the impact reporting of MFIs.
