Breaking the Finance Barriers

May 19-20, Nairobi, Kenya

The Center for Financial Inclusion at Accion will be the official Microfinance Session Sponsors at the 5th Annual Africa Banking & Finance Conference to be held on 19-20, May at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Nairobi, Kenya. This Microfinance Session will take a closer look at the governance and risk challenges of microfinance institutions in sub-Saharan Africa, including strategic planning, implementation and monitoring, as well as balancing social and financial performance. A new approach, the Africa Board Fellowship (ABF), has been designed to help take governance of MFIs and financial service companies to the next level, in a new and dynamic way. Bruce MacDonald, Head of CFI Communications, will represent CFI at this event and will be introducing a couple of fellows from the first class of the ABF program.
