[COVID-19] How to cope with the effects of the pandemic on your business: examples from the field


Our first webinar dedicated to the impact of the pandemic on the microfinance sector was met with tremendous interest! Other webinars will follow, in the meantime the recording of this first session is available, together with each of our speaker's presentation.


All across the microfinance sector, initiatives are taken to mitigate the social and economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the most vulnerable - our clients. MFC and EMN have started compiling all relevant practices that could benefit MFIs in their daily work. We will be actively promoting those via our channels, starting on Thursday (26/03) at 11:00 CET with a first webinar focussing on concrete measures to protect clients and staff.

Our speakers for this first webinar

Laure Coussirat-Coustère, Adie (see Laure's presentation)
Roxane Lemercier, microStart (see Roxane's presentation)
Mirjana Panin, Opportunity Bank Serbia (see Mirjana's presentation)
