Course Description:

Delinquency is one of the major challenges that microfinance  
institutions face. The course enables participants to understand  
delinquency by tracing its causes and costs. The course offers various  
perspectives on delinquency from the vantage point of the borrowers  
and the microfinance institution. Participants will also be taught on  
how to measure delinquency using international standards. The course  
prescribes report formats that can be integrated into the MFI?s  
information system to track important information for decision-making.  
The delinquency management course emphasizes both preventive and  
curative strategies. Preventive delinquency management strategies  
include financial shields or prudent financial management practices,  
growth strategies, and delinquency prevention techniques in  
microfinance methodologies. Curative delinquency management strategies  
include prioritizing delinquency management measures, remedial  
management and litigation, crafting incentives systems to reduce  
delinquency, establishing a delinquency task force, loan  
administration strategies for delinquency management, and crafting a  
delinquency management plan. One of the highlights of the course is  
the presentation of the principles and methods of collection. The  
course will also present research results of the most common  
delinquency problems that MFIs face, and how successful MFIs have  
addressed these problems. The course may be credited towards a Diploma  
in Microfinance.
