KMF is not only the largest MFI in Kazakhstan, but it is bascially one of the leading institution in the former Soviet states of Central Asia. More than half of its approximately 250,000 customers are women; two thirds live in rural areas, which is also reflected in the institution’s extensive branch network across the country.
In addition to microfinance, KMF is best known for its charitable projects and free training courses. Since 2013, the institute has trained over 135,000 people in budget planning, avoiding over indebtedness and building up savings. Corresponding advisory measures in areas such as accounting, sales or personnel planning are offered for small businesses, which have so far been used by more than 3,000 customers.
