Peru

Our work in Peru centers on strengthening women through integrated financial services and strengthening partners to provide high quality, client-responsive services to their clients.

Our specially designed e-learning courses build skills in frontline officers of microfinance institutions – those who lead women’s savings and credit groups. The courses build skills in consumer protection, group facilitation, techniques for delivering non-formal education, and microcredit products management. The goal is to form frontline staff who are able to deliver greater benefit to their clients and to their organizations.

We are working with the national microfinance organization Manuela Ramos to integrate stress-reducing health programming into their work with rural indigenous women. The program is designing and testing stress-reducing curricula and activities for rural health fairs that serve poor indigenous women.
