The African Microfinance Week (referred to as the SAM, based on the French acronym) 2017 is still two and a half months away, but 200 microfinance professionals have already bought their tickets! The participants already include a diverse range of professionals from international investors to African MFIs to entrepreneurs and innovators, with 43 countries and 118 organisations already represented.

SAM is a major conference dedicated to the development of financial inclusion in Africa that takes place every two years, with the next SAM taking place from 9 - 13 October, 2017, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The main ambition of the SAM is to provide a unified African platform for exchange on the microfinance issues facing the African continent by bringing together all the professionals of the sector – investors, MFIs, researchers, banks, networks, innovators, governments and others.

The SAM is a whole week to:

  • meet the major players in inclusive finance in Africa: public and private investors, MFI directors, innovators, and researchers;
  • build new partnerships and strengthen current business relations;
  • extend and develop your network of contacts;
  • share innovative best practices;
  • accelerate financial inclusion on the continent.
