About Applied Microfinance Institute

Often, senior and mid-level microfinance managers and consultants in Africa/Asia travel to Europe or the United States to obtain quality analytical training in strategic and core operational areas of microfinance management while interacting with their peers. Even then, most of these programmes provide high-level, generic discussion rather than focused, practice-oriented training designed to build skills.

The cost of participation in these Europe or United States-based programmes severely limits the number of people that can take advantage of them. AMI offers world-class training programmes in Africa/Asia, to allow microfinance managers and consultants to develop the perspective, and above all practical skills, necessary to improve and expand the microfinance services that their institutions offer.

The Applied Microfinance Institute has been designed to meet the demand for field oriented practical trainings. More often than not, there is a large disconnect between trainings and the requirement of the field, AMI seeks to bridge this gap and is based largely on well researched and tested toolkits from MicroSave.

In addition, Applied Microfinance Institute updates participants on the issues of topical interest to the microfinance industry. Thus, alongside the intense technical sessions, there will be discussions amongst panelists representing key personalities in the microfinance industry. In the evening plenary sessions participants will be exposed to current practices in microfinance and lessons from the field.

The Applied Microfinance Institute focuses on developing practical skills that can be immediately applied by participants. Using the MicroSave toolkits as the core curriculum, provides you the opportunity to develop and internalise applicable and actionable skills that can make a significant difference to you and your institution.
