Al Tadamun’s team attended the Sanabel Microfinance Network of Arab Countries’ 13th Annual Conference that was held in Movenpick Hotel, Beirut, Lebanon on November 7-8, 2017. The theme of the conference was ” Financial Inclusion in The Arab Countries; A Journey of Collaboration and Achievements”. The opening ceremony was attended by Mr. Youssef Fawzy, Chairman of the Sanabel Microfinance Network of Arab Countries. This year’s conference provided a platform for all concerned stakeholders to network and share experiences; progress towards regional objectives; and take a closer look at the possibility of expanding financial inclusion in the Arab countries.
This two-day event was attended by over 400 microfinance practitioners, donors, investors, and government representatives from the region and worldwide to share and exchange experiences on the latest developments in the microfinance industry in the Arab region through sessions and discussions.
The 2017 Conference showcased valuable experiences and ongoing initiatives which we hope it provided useful insights to the attendees as they continue to work towards achieving the vision of a more inclusive and progressive environment.
As for Al Tadamun’s team, they keenly sought to network with other MFIs from the MENA region and worldwide to share experiences as well as get introduced to donors and investors who are willing to invest and partner with Arab MFIs
