This two-day intensive training program has been developed intentionally to meet the demand of microfinance organizations (MFIs) in special knowledge and skills in managing operational risks.
As MFIs grow, effective internal control becomes more and more necessary to maintain their life long-lasting. To remain in competitive position MFIs improve their products and widen the borders of their activity, however rapid growth is connected with new risks and challenges. Internal control is an integral component of risks management. The mechanisms of internal control are aimed at improving the process of taking decisions, providing precise, full and up-to-date information for management and board of MFI could react to the problems as soon as they appear.

The primary purpose of this training program is to look at risk, risk management and internal controls from an operational perspective in the MFI. It provides practical ways for MFIs to approach and implement effective internal control systems and internal audit functions within their institutions – whether large or small.Simply put, both the function and activities of “internal audits” and “internal controls” are mitigation strategies for operating risks in MFIs. Internal controls are systems and procedures that seek to prevent problems and institutional loss. The internal audit function may meet external regulatory requirements for MFIs. More than that, it is a management tool to monitor the implementation of internal controls. Internal audits seek to detect problems before they become large and destructive, and they provide assurance and communication to management that its systems are in place, are functioning and are building the MFI’s capacity to deliver its products and services sustainably to the community.
