About Boulder

Since 1995, the Boulder Institute has trained over 7,500 professionals in our Microfinance, Digital Transformation, Rural and Agricultural Finance, and Executive Leadership programs, bringing together representatives from microfinance institutions (MFIs), support organizations and government agencies around new content that is evidence based. As the paramount training institution around inclusive financial services, Boulder Institute has created a vast network of faculty who are recognized experts in the inclusive finance industry. Boulder Institute is known for helping industry professionals understand the changes needed to effectively serve the lower-income markets in their countries in a way that no other training institution is able to develop.

The Boulder Institute has capitalized on the reach of its programs and the depth of its engagement in the microfinance sector by generating paradigm-shifting conversations about financial inclusion, rural financial services, and MFI governance in heated markets. Currently expanding our outreach, we seek wider and more diverse groups of inclusive finance professionals worldwide.

Blog – Boulder Community Corner

We would like to welcome you to this new space dedicated to presenting and discussing key questions related to financial inclusion. In 2020, the Boulder Institute created this Community Corner Blog as a way to put out valuable information for the microfinance community during the pandemic.  We published 23 papers in collaboration with a wide range of our faculty experts.  Many of the papers are of general interest, beyond the impact of the pandemic and we invite you to explore.  We will resume contributions to the BLOG over the coming weeks.

See our articles at the blog in English, in French or in Spanish.
