I am working in a micro finance organisation. Risk and return both are very familiar term to me. In micro finance we are mostly working with small business holder and entrepreneurs . The whole task associated with huge risk and return, lending to the small holder without collateral in some cases took huge tools. At the same time fund for smooth operation also a very critical issue. The course I think will make it easy and give me depath understanding both risk and return.
