Join Us in Alleviating Global Poverty

Worldwide, there have been many examples of businesses attempting to give back through Microfinance or Micro Insurance schemes. Even though these schemes can often work to reduce poverty, results aren’t always consistent.

Risk management professionals in banks face the same credit risk, liquidity risk, and fraud risk as those in Microfinance companies. These similarities allow bankers to join the fight and lend a hand in these efforts.

As part of our corporate social responsibility efforts, BankersLab offers support to this sector through a variety of initiatives.

BankersLab Supports Bankers Without Borders

BankersLab® has worked to build a capacity for volunteer efforts to offer technical assistance, mentoring, and training, by donating labor and knowledge with Bankers Without Borders.

Join our Open Source Initiative

To offer ongoing support to Microfinance Institutions BankersLab created an Open Source Initiative. Even though there are many great resources available, our goal is to fill the gaps and provide access to all resources in one convenient place.

For those with an interest in joining our volunteer efforts to provide training, mentoring, or technical assistance materials to MFIs or MIs, you may register in our Open Source Initiative.
