Manila – The Asian Bankers Association invites banks to participate in the Microfinance Appreciation Course to be jointly hosted by the ABA with the Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation (RCBC) and its microfinance arm, Rizal Microbank on June 4-5, 2018 at the Fairmont Hotel in Makati City, Philippines. The syllabus of the two-day course is attached at the end of this article for your reference.
The Microfinance Appreciation Course is being conducted as part of the ABA’s Short-term Visiting Program. The primary aim of the Short-Term Visiting Program is to provide member banks the opportunity to study and undergo training on specific aspects of the operations and facilities of the host banks. The idea is to enable the visitors to: (i) enhance and upgrade their technical skills and knowledge in specific areas of banking operations in the distinct and peculiar social, economic and business environment of the host country, and (ii) gain first-hand knowledge of the operations, systems and work procedures of the host bank’s various line departments covered by the program.
The Microfinance Appreciation Courses hopes to provide ABA member banks, particularly those who are interested to engage in microfinance as a business initiative, the opportunity to learn from the experience, best practices, and expertise of RCBC and its microfinance arm Rizal Microbank.
The participants and the RCBC experts can exchange views and share knowledge on microfinance as one business activity that ABA members can engage in, in order to sustain and grow their banking operations.
