    institutions in Azerbaijan and published on the MFTransparency website, MFTransparency pricing experts present their analysis of pricing of microloans in the context of the Azerbaijan microfinance market characteristics.
  • Training on transparent communication of prices to clients: MFTransparency COO of Global Programs Alexandra Fiorillo presents best practices for transparent communication of pricing to clients, through loan documentation, loan officer interactions with borrowers and price-setting decisions for maximum transparency. This training builds off of trends observed through the Transparent Pricing Initiative in Azerbaijan as well as MFTransparency’s experiences in microfinance markets internationally.
  • Discussion of the results of the Initiative: This virtual event provided a unique opportunity for stakeholders of the Azerbaijan microfinance market, as well as the international microfinance industry, to engage in discussing the results of the Transparent Pricing Initiative in Azerbaijan. MFTransparency experts took questions and led the discussion on particular topics of interest.

MFTransparency would like to thank everyone who participated in the Azerbaijan Data Launch Webinar.  The session was well-attended and followed by a lively Question & Answer session.
