CapPlus Webinar: A Multi-Pronged Approach to Financing and Strengthening Low-Fee Private Schools from IDP Foundation, Inc. & Sinapi Aba

CapPlus is proud to present a conversation between the IDP Foundation, Inc. and Ghanaian MFI Sinapi Aba, who partnered to pioneer the IDP Rising Schools Program. This innovative approach to financing the low-fee private school sector has to date provided financial and school management training and financing to nearly 600 schools, with a loan repayment rate of 93%. It provides a model for funders and financial institutions interested in launching similar programs in other markets, leveraging capital to improve education outcomes both profitably and sustainably. This webinar presents:
• The development of the IDP Rising Schools Program, including how it was tailored for the market
• Lessons learned and challenges encountered during the program rollout
• How the “virtuous cycle” benefited schools and financial institutions – and ultimately created social benefit
• Successes and opportunities for future deployment
