Financial Statement Analysis
Doha, Qatar August 18-23, 2024

Don’t be afraid of financial statements!  After this course, you will be able to confidently identify ratios, trends, and their impact on your Microfinance institution.  The course brings along non-financial managers in a systematic method without boring accountants and financial managers.  In short order you will understand and identify the most important indicators from these general categories:

  • Profitability Ratios
  • Capital Adequacy and Solvency Ratios
  • Liquidity Ratios
  • Asset Quality Ratios
  • Efficiency and Productivity Ratios
  • Additional Ratios

Plus you’ll understand the benefits of trend analysis, cash vs. accrual accounting, and the benefits of averaging over shorter periods.

The course continues with case studies on delinquency management, liquidity and interest rate management, and activity based costing.  Pairing all what you’ve learned with ratios to this point and considering important elements of strategy, an application of the Balanced Scorecard provides a unique dashboard, customizable for your MFI based on your strategic priorities.

If you don’t consider important change management methods, all the effort which goes into calculating ratios, looking at trends, and identifying problem areas are wasted, so the course concludes with important lessons on change management.
