Prepare a project report on how you would raise fund to establish an Islamic microfinance project in a poor Muslim country of your choice and how you would screen the projects.
You should focus on the following points in your project:
(i) Discuss three theories for fund raising and explore some Islamic avenues from the infq sector you would use them to microfinance SMEs
(ii) Identify three main business areas for microfinance that would alleviate poverty in this country. (chosen country: Bangladesh)
(iii) Evaluate the Risk Profile of such business SMEs
(iv) Explore the entrepreneurial skills you would impart to SMEs participant to make their projects sustainable
NB. 1. Students should not adopt a simple narrative discourse but should rather critically evaluate the literatures. 2. They should not just replicate ideas from literatures but rather display a deep level of critical analysis of the theme.
