The purpose of the course is to teach participants how to assess and analyze the performance trends of microfinance projects through the effective utilization of financial ratios. While participants should have a basic understanding of accounting and the interpretation of financial statements, the course will provide a basic overview of these concepts before entering into more complex types of analysis.
The course is very rich with case studies, group exercises, and best/better practices that will help participants understand implications of decisions/directions of MFIs. The course is designed to be very participatory using high standard adult education techniques.
