RI employs an innovative approach to program design and a high quality of implementation performance in demonstrating deep and lasting impact in reducing human suffering worldwide.
In November of 2008 Enstruct conducted a site visit and pro bono training for Relief International in Beirut, Lebanon. Various MFIs and local banks attended the two day, customized training to assist in analyzing new and existing microfinance loan portfolios. Included with this training were unique exercises and models to assist in credit risk analysis.
Currently, in 2009, Enstruct is developing a simulation based microfinance transaction model to assist in the creation of a microfinance fund that would create loans for housing related projects.
