Microfinance Study Tour to Bangladesh Application
The purpose of the microfinance study tour to Bangladesh is to develop a keen understanding of the challenges facing microfinance operations in a Southeast Asian economy. We will examine practices such as weekly meetings, product design, training, funding, etc., as they relate to such core issues as client protection, impact assessment, repayment, human resource development, etc.
This tour is open to students with a firm grounding in microfinance, and builds on the knowledge of the sector gained through curricular and co-curricular activities. Completion of a course that covers microfinance, e.g., ECON206 or ECON374, is a prerequisite.
