Global Savings Groups Conference 2018: A Catalyst for the Increased Scale, Sustainability and Impact of Savings Groups in Rwanda
The Global Savings Groups Conference is a bi-annual event that engages a large and diverse community of stakeholders, develops and promotes improved standards of practice, mobilizes knowledge, strengthens partnerships and alliances, and creates opportunities for cross-organizational learning. Each event in this series has also served as a catalyst to increase the scale, sustainability and impact of Savings Groups in the host country – and region. SG2015, in Zambia, was the third event in the series and engaged close to 400 participants representing 147 organizations from 44 countries.
The SEEP Network is delighted to host the 2018 Global Savings Group Conference in Rwanda, in May 2018, in partnership with Access to Finance Rwanda.
The purpose of this meeting is to engage development and market actors in Rwanda – including non-governmental organizations, financial service providers, government and funders – to shape the agenda, participate, contribute to and leverage SG2018, to expand the scale, sustainability and impact of Savings Groups in the country.
Participants are kindly requested to confirm their participation to Frank Baguma Turatsinze by COB Thursday, September 7.
