QUICK Centre website launching
Indonesia, March, 12 2008 -
The QUICK Centre is a knowledge sharing platform for microfinance practitioners in natural disaster surroundings.
The QUICK Centre has emerged out of an initiative of Bank Indonesia and the GTZ Promotion of Small Financial Institutions (ProFI) project. Following the May 2006 earthquake in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, the need of a one-stop shop for knowledge transfer to disaster affected MFIs was acknowledged. In addition, institutions and organisations carrying out microfinance response or preparedness measures could also gain from a knowledge exchange platform. Thus the QUICK Centre was born. It is to facilitate the exchange of experiences gained in the field of microfinance and disaster management and thereby serve the whole microfinance and development community.
