About the RMC

The Russian Microfinance Center (RMC) is the Russian Federation’s leading Microfinance think-tank, service provider, and advocate. Since its establishment in 2002, the RMC has become the number one provider of microfinance consulting services, research, and training in Russia, as well as the sole national-level advocate and resource center for Russian Microfinance Institutions (MFIs).

During our 10+ year tenure, we have worked tirelessly to create a more inclusive financial system in Russia and the surrounding region— and will continue to do so until poverty is a pastime.

The Russian Microfinance Center operates as a not-for-profit fund under Article 118 of the Russian Civil Code, maximizing the objectivity of our work. Outside of partnerships and collaborations, no for-profit or not-for-profit entities from either the public or private sphere exert influence over our work.

Our Leadership
