SAM African Microfinance Week: Innovation Fair

Do not miss the opportunity to participate in an event dedicated to the discovery of innovative services, impactful solutions and new technologies that enhance Microfinance Institutions’ (MFIs) ability to target more sophisticated clients like Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).

Why an Innovation Fair?

The Fair aims to present innovative tools and services that can improve the performance of MFIs interested in undertaking a strategic expansion to target increasingly sophisticated customer segments such as SMEs.

The aim of the Fair is not only to inspire visitors, but also to offer a concrete path forward by presenting practitioners with the best available solutions, ready to be implemented at national, regional and pan-African level.

Who are the exhibitors of the Fair?

The exhibitors are organizations, such as consulting firms, training centres, start-ups and Fintech companies that have developed innovative solutions, services and tools to strengthen the capacity, the expertise and the performance of African MFIs.
Furthermore, some solutions can be proposed by organizations that provide services to SMEs that enable them to increase their credibility vis-à-vis the MFIs and to facilitate their access to financial services.
For the exhibitors, the Fair will represent a tremendous opportunity to meet new clients and partners.

Who are the visitors of the Fair?

The third edition of the African Microfinance Week will bring together about 500 professionals from about 50 countries, mostly African ones.

The visitors of the Fair, mainly composed of MFIs, investors, donors and NGOs, are always looking for innovative solutions that can positively impact their activities.
