RIF Academy: an e-learning platform designed to improve social performance in microfinance.

Good Return’s Responsible Inclusive Finance Academy (RIF) works to strengthen the capacity of the microfinance sector to extend financial inclusion to the poorest and most vulnerable members of their communities.

Focusing on the core principles of financial inclusion, the e-learning courses cover client protection, monitoring and evaluation, social performance, staff capacity and inclusive finance. The platform has a user-friendly interface, requires low bandwidth and can be adaptive to multiple devices, making it accessible for those who might otherwise face barriers. The RIF academy can also provide the capacity for microfinance institutions to customise their own e-learning courses for their own in-house or public training.
