Credit Suisse Virtual Volunteers: The CFI has an ongoing collaboration with a group of “Virtual Volunteers” from Credit Suisse. In 2012, the Investing in Inclusive Finance team will work with a different group of virtual volunteers in developing an online community for Council of Microfinance Equity Fund members. The aim of this project is to improve the communications and dialogue among CMEF members through improvements to the Council website and better utilization of social media.
In 2011, the Investing in Inclusive Finance team led a group of virtual volunteers in investigating frameworks for social investing. Through extensive research and interviews with experts from the field, project participants uncovered the challenges and realities social impact investors face when investing in microfinance, as well as the progress and initiatives being made within the field.
