East Africa Microfinance Summit 2017

16.11.2017 - 17.11.2017, Kampala, Uganda

Digital Financial Inclusion: a reflection on the Perspectives, Pros and Challenges for Various Stakeholders

The Association of Microfinance institutions of Uganda (AMFIU), East African Microfinance Network,  and Uganda Ministry of Finance Planning and Economic
Development  have organised the 3rd East Africa Microfinance Summit 2017, an annual regional event that brings together various microfinance stakeholders to share experiences, introduce innovations and facilitate networking amongst various stakeholders.

The theme considers the fact that financial institutions are offering digital financial services to the public. But,

  • is it really a simple binary choice between technology and tradition? 
  • Can we find a “third way” to maintain the unique value of microfinance within the digital world?
  • What does a microfinance institution need to go digital, and what are the risks?

This Summit will be a key platform to debate the trade-offs, make the case for digital, and critically examine what aspects of traditional service delivery we need to improve.
