The session will touch upon topics related to the new legislative and regulatory framework that is being adopted in Albania. It will discuss the impact of the new framework at national level, as well as current needs of the Albanian microfinance sector in terms of operational aspects and new technologies, including disbursement of loans and collection of loan repayments aspects.

The webinar will be split in two main sessions with the following sub-topics:
