Strategic Financial Management Program for SME Bank Lending Officers

ADFIAP’s Asia-Pacific Institute of Development Finance, in partnership with the Development Bank of Turkey (Kalkinma) and the UNEP/Wuppertal Institute Collaborating Centre on Sustainable Consumption and Production (UNEP/WICCSCP), will be conducting a 5-day International Seminar-Workshop on Financial Management for SMEs to be held on July 23-27, 2012 in Manila, Philippines.

Ideally for loan officers and SME advisers of banks to know how financial institutions can effectively manage their SME lending business under a risk-mitigated environment, this training-program will focus on enhancing the overall capacity of financial institutions in evaluating SME project proposals, specifically in relation to financial, environmental and operational aspects. There will be study visits to financial institutions that afford the participants the opportunity to observe good practices and lessons learned which can be adopted and replicated in their own banks.
