With a jam-packed two days planned, we will be investigating the new world of NILS and StepUP through the approach of many perspectives – the applicant, the interviewer, the assessor, the administrator, the organisation – and how everyone is working collaboratively to ensure the best outcome.

Come along and get the inside scoop from community sector peaks on what is really happening for our clientele around the cost of living and predatory financial products that are out to take advantage. Be part of the discussion and sharing of how we can work together for a brighter future for all.

Come and meet your fellow microfinance workers; engage in workshops to build your skills; and find out about NILS post transition, what’s happening for StepUP, and where we are all heading within the microfinance space.

I encourage all Microfinance front-line workers, managers and others interested in the Financial Inclusion space to attend the ❤ Small Loans, Big Hearts Queensland 2018 Forum ❤. Come along, share the experience, and let’s support one another to actively move ‘Towards Tomorrow Together
