Supporting Your Business Series

A Discussion with the Microfinance Sector

Join us on Facebook on June 18th for a live discussion with key stakeholders from the microfinance sector!

From 3:00 pm -4:15 pm on Thursday, June 18th, join the SME Response Clinic on Facebook for a live webinar with key stakeholders from the Rwandan microfinance sector hosted by Access to Finance Rwanda and the Association of Microfinance Institutions in Rwanda (AMIR).

You can join simply by opening up the SME Response Clinic page on Facebook at 3pm on June 18th. It will be your chance to learn more about the microfinance sector’s response to support SMEs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The SME Response Clinic’s goal is to provide more information to SMEs in Rwanda during the pandemic. The Clinic’s partners know that many small businesses are struggling with lack of cash flow, repayment of loans, and an uncertain future right now.

An important part of the response is already coming from the microfinance sector and other institutions. There are products and services in place that are meant to aid with issues of working capital, reduced revenue and liquidity. The key to managing a business and surviving the pandemic will be to stay informed, stay safe, and know what is available to you as a business person – especially if you operate in a hard-hit industry like tourism, hospitality or transport.

During the webinar, you will learn about products and services available from the microfinance sector. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with:

  • Jules Théoneste Ndahayo, Chief Executive Officer, UFC PLC and Chairman of the AMIR Board of Directors
  • Laurence Uwambaje, Director General, UMWALIMU SACCO
  • Grace Dushimimana, Chief Executive Officer, VisionFund Rwanda
  • Aimable Nkuranga, Executive Director, Association of Microfinance Institutions in Rwanda

This webinar will be held primarily in English and will be moderated by Frank Baguma, Programs Officer, MFIs & SACCOs Development at Access to Finance Rwanda.
