On the 13th of September 2023, The KWFT Managing Director, Mwangi Githaiga accompanied by Senior Leadership Team had the privilege of hosting 9 Members of Ugandan Parliament who were on a benchmarking and study tour of the Kenyan microfinance sector. This exchange was made possible courtesy of Association of Microfinance Institutions (AMFI).

The value of Kenya’s sectors, particularly in the realm of microfinance and women’s financial inclusion, cannot be overstated. By studying these best practices, Uganda can gain valuable insights into crafting policies and strategies that promote financial inclusion and gender equality within its own borders.

As a model institution, the KWFT MD gave a comprehensive presentation to demonstrate the Institution’s core activities and its innovative approaches to women’s financial empowerment. This highlighted KWFT’s commitment to offering accessible financial products and services tailored to the unique needs of women entrepreneurs and individuals in rural and marginalized communities in Kenya.

The delegates were impressed by KWFTs approach to sustainable finance and the presentation set the stage for insightful discussions.

KWFT’s hosting of the delegation from the Parliament of Uganda marked an important milestone in fostering knowledge-sharing and cross-border collaboration within the East African region. This exchange of ideas and experiences between Uganda and Kenya promises to lay the foundation for future advancements and collaborations in the pursuit of gender equality and financial inclusion.
