Tools, Workshops & Trainers at Microfact

‘Let your figures talk’ is the slogan of Microfact. Microfact is a joint initiative of BRS (Belgium) and ADA (Luxembourg).

Microfinance institutions can turn to Microfact for expertise on how to evaluate their financial and social figures and communicate about them transparently with everyone involved.

Tools

We have developed MFI Factsheet and Microvision – tools for monitoring financial and social performance and for making reliable projections. They are intended for microfinance institutions and for other organisations active in the sector such as funders, donors, or networks. In total, more than 1000 institutions and organisations use one of our Microfact tools.

Incofin Investment Management

“Proud of 13 of our Incoffin colleagues who have completed the 8-week Microfact e-learning course on Performance Analysis of Microfinance Institutions. Both our employees in the back office as our newcomers are from now on champions in analysing the financial and social situation of a microfinance institution and its position in the market. Thank you Microfact.”

Noel Muhawenimana

Chief Executive Officer

I have participated in Microfact training for both “Performance evaluation of MFIs” and “Business planning with projections in Microvision”. I am now able to prepare an MFI Factsheet and make projections with Microvision of any MFI. The way training, training materials, and support during training are organized is excellent.

I would recommend all my colleagues to participate in Microfact training. The special thing I remained with is “Performance Evaluation and Key Performance Indicators of an MFI”. Thanks to Microfact

I have been using MFI Factsheet almost since its first version back in 2011-2012 and found the tool useful, pragmatical. When I first heard that BRS and ADA developed a new projection tool in 2017, I got immediately interested in it and motivated to learn how to use an additional tool of the Microfact toolbox. In addition, I was also very much interested in meeting with Microfact team in Leuven after all these years reading their newsletter and interacting indirectly with them from a distance.

As a microfinance consultant in Nigeria, I have worked with several MFIs in the area of business planning and financial projection, the common problem I have seen in the industry is a capacity gap in financial modelling. MFIs fails to develop good business plans with a realistic financial projection. So, when I saw the advert from Ada regarding Microvision, I saw the need to participate in the training for the purpose of empowering the MFIs that I support back home.

One of the things I like most about Microvision is its ease of use. Even if you have no previous experience in financial projections, you can learn how to use the tool quickly by consulting the manual. The Microvision course will teach you everything you need to know about how to use the tool effectively and get the best results. In addition, the course is designed by experts, so you will be learning from the best in the field.

If you need a reliable and user-friendly financial forecasting tool, I highly recommend Microvision. And if you want to get the most out of this tool, I recommend you take the Business planning with projections in Microvision course offered by Microfact.

From my point of view, the Microvision tool provides a very solid basis for converting strategic and business plans of Microfinance Institutions and Credit Unions into projections that produce goals, indicators, and other relevant numerical data that allow adequate and timely monitoring of the progress, changes, and challenges of these Institutions in the Central American region.  

 

The tool is practical and can be adapted to different types and sizes of institutions and incorporates the institution’s basic financial and social indicators required by management and funders. In addition, the work methodology is quite practical and accessible at different times, while maintaining a manageable pace of work. I recommend the course to people with experience in business and financial management in this type of institution.
