Market-led Microfinance Project
MicroSave-Africa, founded 1998, is a successful initiative to promote high quality financial services for poor people. The results of the work, quality tools, training courses and research reports have been widely disseminated. A series of external reviews in late 2002 recognized the value and impact of the project, and recommended that it be continued. Building on its achievements, MicroSave-Africa developed the Market-led Microfinance Project to build the capacity of the financial sector to provide high-quality financial services for poor people by
1. assisting in the creation of successful market-led microfinance institutions under the action research partner programme;
2. developing toolkits and resources for use by action research partners and the global microfinance industry; and
3. increasing the capacity of service providers to deliver technical assistance and training on toolkits developed under point (2).
A significant proportion of its activities is in Uganda. For this reason it has maintained its office in Kampala to ensure that the important and dynamic market in Uganda is adequately served.
Projekt ist eine Weiterentwicklung von EZA 2111-00/01 'MicroSave-Africa Regional Microfinance Product Innovation & Improvement Project' und baut auf bisherige Finanzsektorprojekte in Uganda auf.
