Responsible Finance

Responsible Finance


  • Workshop Overview:

Responsible Finance has gained importance in recent years due to the series of crises that hit the microfinance industry globally. Across the world, a number of efforts and campaigns are underway to promote the adoption of responsible finance practices within MFIs and the sector at large. This workshop will provide a brief overview of responsible finance, focusing in on the Smart Campaign’s client protection principles. It will present experiences of MFIs that have begun their journey towards certification including some of the major changes that they have had to make within their institutions and the learnings that have resulted from this process. It will also shed light on why MFIs should pursue the certification even in environments where investors and donors are still not requesting it.
