Join industry practitioners and interested individuals at an exceptionally well rated Microfin course in Toronto, Canada 14-18 September 2020. This 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.  Each completed Microfin section contains check figures for self verification.

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 will be taught in English and the location is the Radisson Toronto Airport Hotel, which is 90 minutes from Niagara Falls.
