Event Description

A recent state of practice report identifies 74 government initiatives related to Savings Groups (SGs) across 20 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. The interventions of national governments in the sector are wide-ranging and include public policies, strategies, regulation and programming related to financial inclusion, social protection, women’s empowerment and sector coordination.

The effective engagement of national governments provides stakeholders – including funders, civil society organizations and financial service providers – opportunities to expand the scale, sustainability and impact of Savings Groups, as well as to leverage Savings Groups for broader development objectives.

This webinar will provide an overview of government policies and programming in the sector across Africa, including key trends, followed by a discussion with Josephine Muriuki (Government of Kenya) and Dr. Monique Nsanzabaganwa (National Bank of Rwanda) on government policies, priorities and partnerships related to Savings Groups in Kenya and Rwanda.
