Apply today for the Carsey School of Public Policy’s Sustainable Microfinance and Development Program (SMDP)
The Carsey School of Public Policy and the SMDP are once again offering the summer microfinance training in New Hampshire, where students will earn a Certificate of Microfinance Development. The SMDP NH Certificate program provides students with a far-reaching curriculum encompassing the most current evidence based practices of development finance interventions to help individuals and communities move out of extreme poverty. The course will look critically at what works, what doesn’t work, and how non-governmental organizations, commercial MFIs, government agencies, private donors, and the capital markets have all contributed to the success and failure of the microfinance sector. Several leaders in the field will join the classes as faculty and guest presenters throughout the six-day course.
The goal of the SMDP NH Certificate is to give both new and experienced development practitioners a solid understanding of the wide range of options available in microfinance today. Students will critically explore methodologies, strategies, products, services, organizational models, and movements which have the greatest efficacy toward building dignity, assets, and financial and economic inclusion among the poor in the developing world with an emphasis on the African continent.
