While slowly recovering from the heavy impacts of one of the worst financial crises, the whole world fearfully anticipates its second wave in 2012, another tsunami of poisonous loans that could swamp microfinance sector as well as other conventional financial institutions. Further out, current high intensity of "unfair and fierce competition" from commercial banks armed with ample resources but lacking "market knowledge" is seen to be the fastest rising risk facing the industry, more urgent than credit risk. Therefore, like never before, MFIs need to look beyond the repayment problems and the concomitant growth of over-indebtedness that surfaced during the recent crisis and shift their focus on other critical vulnerabilities requiring the development and implementation of more proactive and multifaceted strategy to successfully deal with complex challenges in tougher market conditions.
In order to boost their preparedness and strengthen resilience to this forthcoming unprecedented economic downturn, the MFIs from all over the world felt an urgent need to meet up again in Prague for the 2nd annual microfinance forum and discuss about the aformentioned topics.
