Expanding the Cashbox: Linking Saving Groups to Financial Services
Time: 10-11am and 11pm-12am (UK Time: GMT +0)
Join this special webinar to hear speaker Karen Lewin, Product Director of VisionFund International, as she presents a report of results and lessons learned by VisionFund in implementing a savings group linkage loan product in four countries: Tanzania, Rwanda, Ghana and Zambia.
The aim of the report is to share practical findings on keys to success in linking with savings groups in ways that improve household well-being and are sustainable and scalable. The report outlines the key risks for financial service providers (FSPs) in lending to savings groups (including portfolio quality, fraud and over-indebtedness) and describes practical ways of mitigating those risks.
