Responsible pricing workshop  [MFC]

We would like to invite you for a special pre-conference workshop and discussion on responsible pricing. Together we will explore what we mean by “responsible pricing”, what we can do as a sector to achieve our goals, and what each individual microfinance institution can do to ensure adequate and fair pricing.

Registration for the workshop is required. Please note that the priority will be given to MFC members

IFC Digital Finance & Data Workshop (by invitation)

The aim of this workshop is to provide microfinance institutions (MFIs) with the basics of digital financial services (DFS) implementation in MFIs, why DFS is important for MFIs, how to better leverage data for decision-making, and illustrate global models and examples for how MFIs interact with DFS.

Opening Plenary Session: Horizon 2037: Fair Finance for All?

We’re opening the conference with the big questions: namely how major sector developments over the past two decades will serve us in the coming two decades — and whether or not in 2037, we will be celebrating having finally reached full financial inclusion. In particular, we will discuss how technology is transforming financial systems, disrupting traditional banking and the foundations of our current social structures, including the role of governments.  We will debate the implications of the digital revolution, and how microfinance institutions can pro-actively embrace and leverage technology to provide valuable opportunities for entrepreneurs, start-ups and social enterprises.  We will also ask: is there a new role for socially-oriented microfinance?  We think so, and hope to provide some guidance and inspiration for practitioners to take an active role in imagining our collective future as a sector, and laying the groundwork for the milestones we will celebrate in time for our 40th anniversary.
