MISSION : PAMIGA's mission has been broken down into a few strategic goals based on (i) their potential to significantly scale-up rural finance, (ii) their alignment with partner MFIs' own strategy, (iii) the replication potential, and (iv) PAMIGA's capacity to deliver.
They include the following:
• Mergers and transformations
• Financial services
Cross-cutting themes such as institutional strengthening, social performance management, client financial education, are also developed.
ORGANIZATIONAL SET-UP: Each strategic goal is under the responsibility of a dedicated staff ("champion"), who is supported by senior officers and programme managers for specific projects or for cross-cutting topics.173
LOCAL PRESENCE: PAMIGA has two regional offices:
• One for West and Central Africa in Dakar, Senegal
• One for East Africa in Nairobi, Kenya
EFFICIENT KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT: South/south collaboration and peer-learning are at the heart of PAMIGA's additionality. Partner MFIs are invited to participate in three working groups (merger/transformation, environment and technology), and to the Annual CEO Meetings. The objectives are to share experience, foster contact among MFIs, capitalize, identify and share good practices.
