SESRIC organised a workshop on “Islamic Social Financing: Microfinance and Microtakaful” in Almaty, Kazakhstan on 12-13 November 2015, in collaboration with the Association of National Development Finance Institutions (ADFIMI).
This workshop introduced participants to the concept of Islamic Microfinance and Microtakaful which essentially deal with the developmental needs of the unbankable members of the society; particularly their financial needs and those related to social security. The workshop addressed these needs comparatively from the conventional and Islamic perspectives and enriched by discussions on microfinance and microtakaful issues related to contemporary business practices and cases.
The workshop aimed to enhance the capabilities of the participants holding various positions particularly in the banking and finance sectors, and equip them with the necessary tools of Islamic social financing.
