Microfinance Management Institute (MFMI) and CGAP Training Program Unite

In February 2007, CGAP and the MFMI announced their agreement to join two of CGAP's highly successful training programs—Skills for Microfinance Managers and the CGAP/UNCDF Donor Training—with the MFMI MBA Program. CGAP is a co-founder of the MFMI along with the Open Society Institute. The united effort will strengthen the skills of trainers and academics in microfinance and build donor awareness of how to support the capacity and opportunities of those offering financial products and services to the poor. The MFMI will 1) post information and resources on training and education; 2) strengthen and motivate local service providers to deliver high-quality microfinance courses and skills building programs; 3) improve donor effectiveness in supporting training and education; and 4) accelerate the use of best practice messages, tools, and publications on financial inclusion.

The MFMI website will be updated soon to incorparate these programs.
