AMFIU –Research and Advocacy 

and Advocacy

This programme focuses on conducting studies on contemporary issues in microfinance and publishing success stories and best practices at industry and institutional levels. It also focuses on enhancing a shared understanding of the microfinance issues in the country through dialogue.

AMFIU lobbies government at various levels to influence it in the development of an appropriate policy framework for microfinance practitioners. This is done based on researched data. The MDI Act (2003) for example was a result of AMFIU’s lobbying efforts. Recently, AMFIU actively participated developing the regulatory framework for tier 4 institutions.
