3rd Global Islamic Microfinance Forum' 2013 3rd Global Islamic Microfinance Forum' 2013 Presentation Transcript

  • Overcoming the financial challenges facing Islamic microfinance Dr Ajaz Ahmed Khan, 3rd Global Islamic Microfinance Forum, Dubai, 6th October 2013 Blue Mosque, Istanbul, Turkey
  • Why is Islamic microfinance not more widespread? • Profit sharing involves high transactions costs • Requires high level of transparency - the difficulty associated with calculating profits and losses • Low institutional technical capacity, established policies and procedures and guidance • Authenticity and what is really ‘Shari’ah Compliant’? • Lack of funding Imam Mosque, Isfahan, Iran
  • How can we overcome the lack of funding? • Provide more services than just credit (savings, takaful, money transfer, etc.). • Establish better links with the Islamic finance industry and encourage them to downscale. • Establish better links with Islamic institutional donors. • Establish specialist Islamic microfinance investment funds. Sana’a, Yemen
  • P2P lending: the lendwithcare experience • Raised more than $5 million in capital, and growing exponentially - raising more than $300,000 per month • More than 13,000 individual lenders (95% from the UK) and attracting 500 new lenders each month • 98% of lenders re-lend • Making microfinance affordable for anyone anywhere Badshahi Mosque, Lahore, Pakistan
  • Why not create an Islamic peer to peer lending/donation platform? Would offer several advantages: •Generate new capital •Secure, steady, long-term funding for MFIs – much cheaper than commercial sources and independent of the whims of institutional donors •Outlet for sadaqah and zakat •Making microfinance affordable •Ensuring the focus remains on improving poor peoples lives.
