LFS participated in hosting a workshop for Jordanian commercial banks on the subject of SME lending. LFS moderated the event and presented best practices. LFS also brought in an executive from a bank that had previously downscaled in Uzbekistan under LFS’s advisory (Hamkor Bank). The executive presented his bank as a successful downscaling case study. The workshop included a SWOT analysis of pre- and post- SME lending at the bank, the milestones and challenges the bank faced, and a closing roundtable / Q&A session.
