MFIs & Other Organizations Serving the Poor
How can Bankers without Borders® help your institution?
By providing small loans for self-sustaining businesses, microfinance institutions (MFIs) are improving the lives of more than 150 million poor people each day. But the need—the number of people who are candidates for microfinance support—is far greater. Whether it is a commercial bank or an NGO, if you work at or with an MFI or a related organization, you know that microfinance institutions face many challenges today—in finance, corporate governance, information management, technology, business development, marketing, and human resources. At the same time, many MFIs often lack affordable access to the skills and training they need to adopt the best practices in these areas, limiting their ability to cooperate efficiently and expand to serve more poor people. Bankers without Borders can help MFIs and other organizations improve operations, develop new products, and ultimately ensure more of the world’s poor have the opportunity to progress out of poverty.
Through support from our global sponsor, J.P. Morgan, the Bankers without Borders Alliance Program aims to establish a global network of local organizations who can help to identify and scope volunteer projects that can benefit from the pro bono services of the more than 10,000 skilled business professionals from around the world willing to donate their time and expertise to help microfinance and technology organizations improve their scale, sustainability, and impact.
