How was BWC 2019?

First of all: Congratulations to all of the participating institutions, You have done a great job!

Client’s workshops and fairs, along with one-on-one meetings for borrowers organized at the MFI’s branches; educational materials distributed through on-line channels : websites and social media; many kinds of different events limited only by MFI’s/Associations’ imagination – that is how Borrow Wisely Campaign (BWC) participants reached out to their Clients.

And what do Clients say themselves?

I attended the “Skills Camp” in Thessaloniki which was held by the “Women on Top” Organization past October, and more precisely, the microSTARS workshop about funding tools, which was very interesting, offering practical information. The Health Check quiz was a “food for thought” exercise that enabled us to start thinking about potential mistakes of our economic/financial management.

Very useful information that remained me on some items that I do not take into consideration

 I remember last year when I brought home this flyer, my son said: I really can’t believe that there is a financial institution who really cares that their clients know how to avoid overdebtedness. And I told him, yes, that’s my MI-BOSPO’.
