M2i Consulting has wide experience of implementation of microfinance programmes. We have helped organizations to roll out microfinance operations in new areas. M2i has successfully implemented and handed over microfinance as a new business line for many finance companies and banks wanting to down-scale.
M2i also provides mentorship support to small and medium MFIs. It helps them to establish sound and ethical management practices with appropriate loan products and processes.
