As we embarked on the new year of 2017, UNCDF in Myanmar achieved a number of milestones in financial inclusion. January witnessed two workshops successfully held in Yangon, Myanmar – one on Microfinance Institutions (MFIs) with their over-indebtedness issue and another on the Customer Journey Data Analytics Training and Research. In February, UNCDF launched its Market Development Facility (MDF) with its first loan issued to Pyae Mahar Services Ltd.
