PAMIGA targets rural Africa. The reason is simple : more than 80% of the poor live in rural areas. Microfinance offers these financially excluded populations an opportunity to improve their livelihoods.
Mature, medium-sized MFIs
PAMIGA works with mature, medium-sized, relatively autonomous MFIs.
Faced with growing competition and an increasingly demanding clientele, these MFIs must grow and increase outreach if they want to be sustainable and competitive.
PAMIGA offers tailored technical and financial services, advice on how to innovate (financial products, information technologies, risk management strategies) and guidance for merging MFIs.
Building local capacity.
PAMIGA strengthens the microfinance sector by helping local consultants keep up with sector innovations and hone expertise of specialized areas like change or risk management.
