SIFTA Webinar for Microfinance

KPMG’s 2023 Global Tech Report reports that 68% of surveyed companies consider AI and machine learning as vital in helping achieve their business goals over the next 3 years. And no wonder: 63% of respondents have reported an increase in performance as a result of their digital transformation efforts over the past 2 years. Moreover, tech investments have driven profit or performance improvements of over 10%, a significant rise from the previous year’s uplift of 2.5%—a fourfold increase.

The benefits of digital transformation, as demonstrated by the surge in performance and profit across various industries, are particularly relevant for Social Enterprise Finance Providers (SEFPs). With AI and machine learning, SEFPs can enhance decision-making processes, streamline operations, and ultimately increase their impact. AI-driven analytics can provide deeper insights into financial trends, borrower behavior, and risk management, crucial for these organizations as they aim to balance profitability with social impact.

This webinar is designed for data specialists, risk managers, credit officers, and C-Level managers at SEFPs looking to harness the power of AI for positive social impact.
