Gavan Podbury Award for Individual Excellence

NILS and StepUP are unique programs that changes lives. Often their power lies in the relationship between the microfinance worker and their client. Research has shown that even when clients are ineligible for a loan, their interaction with a NILS or StepUP worker is invaluable.

The Gavan Podbury award for excellence is awarded to an individual NILS or StepUP worker who has gone beyond their job description. Do you know someone who goes above and beyond the call of duty?  Perhaps they’ve advocated on behalf of a client to get a debt waived or reduced? Or someone who has worked tirelessly and resourcefully within the system to get great outcomes for their clients beyond the loan itself.

The Judges will consider:
  • the extended benefits that clients have received when going through a loan application
  • the impact the NILS or StepUP worker has had on the program team
  • the impact the NILS or StepUP worker and their work has had on their community.
