building loan competence center


Explanation:
The term is common enough and German enough. look at the following:

http://www.mbcc.bankakademie.de/05_project.html

"Bankakademie recommended to create a Microfinance Competence Center (MCC) at Uganda Institute of Bankers as a "one-stop" location for obtaining training, accessing microfinance databases and recent literature."

What is interesting is that "Competence Center" (spelled in English) is used more in German writing than in English writing.
