Today, the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund) added new reference materials to its Capacity Building Initiative website in support of the “Scaling Up Microfinance” training series. The new Resource Bank supplements the series, which expands the ability of Community Development Financial Institutions to provide microfinance programs, through publicly available training materials, expert analysis, and third-party references.
Topics covered in the “Scaling Up Microfinance Resource Bank” include the market and demand for microfinance; potential business models, products, and services; and resource management. In the coming months, the Resource Bank will be expanded to include the series’ training curriculum and technical assistance webinars.
To view the Resource Bank, and to learn more about the “Scaling Up Microfinance” training series, as well as the other series available under the Capacity Building Initiative, please visit www.cdfifund.gov/cbi.
