About the Bootcamp

Under the umbrella of the PMN’s Center of Excellence, PMN has been involved in arranging some trainings at local level and awarding scholarships to candidates for international Microfinance trainings such as Boulder and HBS-Accion, Frankfurt School for Finance and Management, and School of Applied Microfinance. However, due to a limited number of managers being sent for these trainings, many are left behind every year. Therefore, to provide an opportunity to mid-level and field managers in Pakistan, PMN has planned the first-ever Microfinance Bootcamp. The program aims to bring together a diverse group of professionals across Pakistan from Microfinance Banks and Non-Bank Microfinance companies, donors, regulators and investors under one roof a week to attend various sessions and immerse themselves in the peer-learning experience.  To make this Bootcamp a success PMN will be supported by its knowledge partner, FINMAN Group.
