Microfinance Focus, February 7, 2012: MicroFinance Transparency (MFTransparency) has released the microloan pricing data collected as part of the Transparent Pricing Initiative in Mozambique.
Mozambique is the eighth country in the enabling APR & EIR Program – a client protection effort in Africa, raising awareness of transparent pricing issues in Malawi, Uganda, Rwanda, Ghana, Tanzania, Zambia and Mozambique.
Along with the release, MFTransparency pricing experts discussed pricing dynamics in the Mozambican microfinance market in a recorded webinar. Using actual pricing data collected from microfinance institutions in Mozambique, pricing experts will present their analysis of pricing of microloans in the context of Mozambican microfinance market characteristics.
MFTransparency CEO Chuck Waterfield will present a series of recommendations tailored to the Mozambican market context, including loan documentation, loan officer interactions with borrowers and price-setting policy decisions for maximum transparency.
This recorded webinar will provide a unique opportunity for stakeholders of the Mozambican microfinance market, as well as the international microfinance industry, to view the results of the Transparent Pricing Initiative in the country and write in with their queries.
