MFI Crises Risk-Management Course
AED contracted Banyan Global through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Small and Microfinance Assistance for Recovery and Transition (SMART) program to conduct a three-day training on crises risk management for microfinance institutions (MFIs) in the West Bank and Gaza. Risk management allows MFIs to minimize the adverse consequences associated with internal and external risks. This course was tailored for the West Bank and Gaza and focused on external risks and their internal impact, associated with the political environment. As such, centered on helping MFIs to manage and limit losses from delinquency, as well as plan for and manage their liquidity to withstand recurring external stresses to their balance sheet because of the conflict and economic climate.
