Two of our Phd students defended their theses.

 At CERSEM we are very proud these days. On Thursday 13th of December two of our PhD students successfully defended their theses. We are also very thankful to FAHU foundation for funding their studies. Stephen Zamore and Kwame Djan, both from Ghana, have been brilliant students finishing their theses in only three years. Stephen has now been hired by us in a postdoc position. Kwame is in the job market so let us know if you are hiring. Both Stephen and Kwame have already published several interesting studies like this one by Stephen on whether it is beneficial for MFIs to integrate nonfinancial in their business models and this one by Kwame on whether Christian MFIs are governed differently than secular MFIs
Let us also take the opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas. Stay posted in 2019 for more news from the Center for Research on Social Enterprises and Microfinance.

Best wishes,
Professor Roy Mersland
