This event is organized by ADA Microfinance, Luxembourg 

This session will be conducted in English

Featured speakers

Facilitator and presenter:Matthe Genazzini, Programme Manager, ADA, Luxembourg


The training is based on a web application simulating a microfinance institution in a market. It consists of creating groups of 2 to 5 persons depending on the size of the group who are responsible for creating and managing a microfinance institution all along during the game. We have six periods or rounds representing three months each. The actual scenario covers up to two years of activities, but this is adapted to duration of the training period. Participants will be asked to weigh in on various matters of markets, products or strategy. Faced with a number of choices , any decision they make will have consequences for the performance of the virtual IMF.

  1. Understand the importance of a development strategy

  3. Understand and appreciate the performance indicators
  4. Understand the implications of decisions when managing an MFI
  5. Understand the major risks that the MFI has to face
