GFI signs MOU with Digital Pilipinas for collaboration on SME Financial Empowerment Programme roll-out in the Philippines

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.
