Digital Pilipinas and Global FinTech Institute have signed an MOU at the recently concluded Singapore Blockchain Week 2022 to collaborate closely with the Department of Trade and Industry & Filipino universities to co-create and roll-out digital finance literacy content for SMEs in the Philippines, under the second phase of the SME Financial Empowerment (SFE) Programme. Digital Pilipinas is the largest private-sector movement in the Philippines to actively champion technological adoption in industries, cities, and regions.
The SFE is led by Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), in partnership with IFC – International Finance Corporation and UNDP, and with Singapore University of Social Sciences as founding academic partner. The various organisations will work closely on education, research, training & development and dissemination of knowledge that concerns the financial empowerment of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (“MSMEs”).
The SFE is run on a digital portal operated by Proxtera , and courses are offered for as low as $1 only. Upon completion of the course assessments, all participants of the SFE programme will receive Knowledge Certificates issued by GFI , with the support of SUSS.
