Harnessing Student Potential In Microfinance
The Alliance Forum Foundation is delighted to announce that we are now accepting applications for the Fall 2012 'Financial Services for the Poor' Professional Development Course to take place in Bangladesh from September 16th to 22nd 2012. This unique course combines classroom instruction and lectures with observational visits to microfinance institutions (MFI) in the field to provide participants with a holistic understanding of microfinance grounded in the experience of Bangladesh.
The one week September 2012 course will be led by Dr. Syed M. Hashemi, Director of the Development Institute of BRAC University and Senior Microfinance Specialist of CGAP (Consultative Group to Assist the Poor), as well as, leading practitioners and academics from across the field of microfinance. Field visits will be made to a number of NGOs including BRAC, Grameen Bank, SafeSave, and ASA for participants to better understand microfinance in practice.
Course participation is limited to 20-30 participants. Highly motivated individuals with a strong interest in pursuing a career in international development or microfinance should apply by the June 21st 2012 deadline.
Two week courses are also potentially being organized for October/December 2012.
