Symbiotics participates in the 2nd African Microfinance WeekThursday 23rd, July 2015
Several Symbiotics staff recently had the opportunity to meet with a large number of microfinance practitioners and policy makers from 36 African countries from June 29-July 3rd in Dakar Senegal for the second edition of the African Microfinance Week was held. This year’s driving theme was “Innovation in rural finance:” how to accelerate agricultural finance and promote initiatives around it. Along with its many conference talks and panels, an Innovation Fair and an Investor’s Fair were organized in order to allow attendees to hear about specific topics and hold short one-on-one speed meetings.
In addition, Regimfa, the Regional MSME Investment Fund for Sub-Saharan Africa, managed by Symbiotics since 2011, sponsored the Investor’s Fair where over 80 financial institutions were present. This event provided an occasion for investors and fund managers to meet one-on-one conversations with new and existing partner financial institutions.
