Business Planning with Microfin
Dubai, UAE
16-20 March 2020

Join industry practitioners and interested individuals at an exceptionally well rated Microfin course in Dubai, UAE 16-20 March 2020. The course combines delegates’ actual budgeting experiences, both successes and challenges, with a customized case study which draws upon the trainer’s 25 years of experience in the Microfinance Industry.

The course will be taught in English.

Microfin is not just a simple budgeting spreadsheet for Microfinance Institutions, but a holistic enterprise planning tool, designed to help budgeting managers, CFOs, and operations officers plan for monthly branch expansion, staff hiring, cash management, and asset purchasing. In addition, Microfin includes a complete set of monthly financial statements, ratio reports, graphs, and monthly budget-to-actual variance analysis.

Due to the comprehensive nature of the spreadsheet, many users are initially intimidated by the software. My training courses empower users with a developer-led, thorough explanation of Microfin, utilizing a hands-on case study and the latest version of the software. Assumptions and results are explained and logically tested, removing that initial intimidation and giving confidence to the users that they can implement Microfin, project results, and make informed decisions for their own MFI.

The course location is near the international airport, which is within walking distance of cultural, tourist, and shopping activities.  In addition, for those who can make their departure in the evening of Friday 20 March 2020, we will visit the Burj Khalifa tower, the tallest building in the world, after completing the course activities.

  • For those who commit to attend by 26 February 2020 the cost will be USD 1,050
