    Uniglobal’s 15th Annual Global Microfinance Forum

    Microfinance is constantly facing significant changes: microfinance products are being developed and modified by MFIs; more and more traditional financial institutions, banks, fintech and other organizations, such as credit unions, guarantee funds and mobile operators are getting involved in microfinance; national authorities are developing and tightening up regulations in order to facilitate and speed up further financial sector development.

    Uniglobal’s 15th Annual Global Microfinance Forum will cover a wide range of topics that make this forum appealing to MFIs, investors and other industry players from all over the world. It will bring on board a unique network of experts and senior level speakers who will share their experiences and perspectives on current and future trends and challenges in microfinance despite the difficult economic climate and ongoing changes in regulations. During multiple networking sessions the participants will discuss transformation of the industry, financial inclusion, social and environmental impact investment, microinsurance, agri-finance and green finance, challenges in corporate governance of MFIs, risk management and many other hot topics.

    Deadline: Call for Proposals – Secure Tenure in African Cities: Micro Funds for Community Innovation

    The Secure Tenure in African Cities: Micro Funds for Community Innovation initiative will address the connection between the issue of land tenure, Africa’s growing young population, and its capacity to innovate and deploy modern technologies. It is funded by Cities Alliance member, Omidyar Network.

    To address this niche, the Cities Alliance has prepared a special Call for its Innovation Fund.  The aim of this Call is to provide opportunities for innovation and impact in community-level projects by targeting national and local organisations and constituencies typically regarded as high risk and/or hard to reach. Applications are sought from social entrepreneurs, micro enterprises, innovators, community-based organisations, national and local NGOs to stimulate the use of simple, affordable, accessible innovations designed to strengthen land and property rights.
