Webinar: Microloan Underwriting with Leslie Hoffman and Barbara Eckblad

September 21, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm

| Free

*Please note SFCDC is not the organizer of this event.

“Microfinance organizations are in the mission-driven business of meeting the capital needs of business borrowers who are challenged with nontraditional credit profiles. This webinar will explore the classic “5 Cs” of small business credit analysis through the lens of microlending. Are there common elements of strong microloan and small business underwriting? What are the differences between these types of underwriting? Presenters will cover facts and myths about the primary predictors of repayment for micro-borrowers and the skills a microloan underwriter must master to assess credit risk effectively. Participants will gain a clear and actionable understanding of industry best practice in microloan underwriting.


In exchange for participating in the webinar free of charge, we are asking participants who work in microenterprise development programs to complete the US Microenterprise Census Survey. The US Microenterprise Census is an online survey that counts and collects data on the microenterprise industry. The data reported to the Census is a crucial tool to help build the industry and make the case for its work. To report your data or for more information on the Census, visit: https://microtracker.org/explore/industry-data/.”
