Egypt’s microfinance lenders are learning to operate under a new regulatory framework which has dictated a change in the way they do business. In addition to the financial reporting requirements and other operational changes, they are faced with the threat from well-capitalised financial institutions that are targeting the microfinance marketplace. This masterclass has been formulated to enable MFIs and NGOs to change the mindset, culture and operational structure of the organisation in order to transform from a not-for-profit into a dynamic, profitable microfinance enterprise. This masterclass is certified by the Microfinance Association based in the UK.
