Peer Groups

Peer Groups

PRFI leverages the expertise of more than 40 senior staffers across member organizations. Participants meet regularly (both in-person and virtually) to collaborate on projects, share best practices, and discuss concerns related to specific areas of microfinance and financial inclusion. These seven Peer Groups work closely with the Working Group staff, helping to establish goals and drive the agenda of the PRFI.
  • Digital Financial Services Peer Group
  • Finance/Tax Peer Group
  • Human Resources Peer Group
  • Microfinance Communications Council
  • Social Performance Peer Group
  • Consumer Protection and Regulatory Engagement Task Force
  • Risk Peer Group

Thanks to the efforts of the Microfinance Communications Council (MCC), in 2016 the PRFI became a hosting partner of the Month of Microfinance, a grassroots movement focused on client-centered microfinance. In April, the MCC hosted a panel discussion at FINCA’s Washington, D.C. headquarters. 2020 Vision: The Future of Microfinance was led by PRFI Executive Director Sharlene Brown and featured leaders from four member organizations: Rupert W. Scofield, President of FINCA International; Mary Ellen Iskenderian, President and CEO of Women’s World Banking; Kathleen Stack, Executive Vice President, Global Programs of Grameen Foundation and former Interim CEO of Freedom from Hunger; and Scott Brown, President and CEO of VisionFund International.
