This is the second session from the “Green Finance at Microfinance Institutions” webinar series, which aims to help all interested microfinance institutions to understand better the implications of climate change, as well as the opportunities and risks that it brings for the sector in Europe.

The webinar is based on a case study of supporting Green Finance at MFIs from Bolivia and will showcase lessons learnt applicable to MFIs from Europe.

The two experts will hold an interactive interview-style online session with lots of opportunities for engagement with the audience through polls and live questions:

  • Ms. Norah Becerra has more than 25 years of experience in MSME lending, rural and agricultural finance, climate adaptation finance and disaster risk finance. She combines an in-depth knowledge of the green finance topic with hands-on practical experience from all over the world. Norah is also a Senior Project Manager at Frankfurt School of Finance & Management
  • Ms. Inken Paysen is assigned as Key Expert in the EaSI Technical Assistance programme and is responsible for designing tailor-made technical assistance and trainings for the Programme’s beneficiaries, the European microcredit providers. Inken is also a Senior Project Manager at Frankfurt School of Finance & Management
