Bandeau EN

Creating values for SME’s: A new key role for microfinance?

The African Microfinance Week (referred to as the SAM, based on the French acronym) is a conference organised by the African networks AMT (African Microfinance Transparency) and MAIN (Microfinance African Institutions Network), and by ADA with the support of the Luxembourg Cooperation.

SAM's main ambition is to become the major microfinance African event; bringing all professionals together to one event saves time and financial resources.

The SAM, a whole week to:

  • meet the decision makers, public and private lenders, MFIs directors;
  • and microfinance investors;
  • build new partnerships and strengthen current business relations;
  • extend and maximize your network of contacts;
  • share best practices and innovative experiences;
  • accelerate financial inclusion on the continent.
