Her strengths include extensive knowledge of finance facilities for MSMEs, agriculture and agricultural value chains as well as for education providers and students. Since 2012, she has successfully guided IPC into the field of education and skills development. Prior to becoming Managing Director, she established and managed ProCredit financial institutions in Haiti and Serbia and, as a consultant, has led and implemented numerous IPC projects.
Dirk Haböck joined the company in 1996 and managed IPC projects in various countries before serving as General Manager of ProCredit Bank Ukraine. In 2008 he became part of IPC’s management team and has since played an instrumental role in building up the company’s business activities in China and in expanding consulting activities to commercial banks. Currently, he is responsible for IPC’s projects in Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the Middle East. Mr Haböck possesses extensive expertise in developing business strategies for banks and carrying out complex consulting projects, as well as in implementing institution and capacity building activities.

Mr Weber has been co-ordinating all of IPC's activities in China since 2008.
