Through the USAID-funded SME Support through Financial Sector Development (SME-FSD) project, the QED Group contracted Banyan Global to conduct a three-day training in Azerbaijan called “Tools and techniques for effective financial risk management.” The training will be provided to members of the Azerbaijan Microfinance Association (AFMA) and will cover interest-rate risk-management requirements, managing deposits, liquidity risk-management requirements, internal-audit requirements, and human-resource requirements for risk management. At the end of the course participants will be able to measure, manage, and monitor the foreign exchange; liquidity; and interest-rate risks of a microfinance institution to make more-informed decisions for continued sustainability and profitability and to meet the requirements of investors, commercial funders, and regulators. The course will contribute to SME-FSD’s strengthening of AFMA’s ability to be a training, service, and advocacy institution that encourages the development of non-bank financial institutions that serve MSME clients.
