Membership

AEMFI which started with four (4) MFIs now has the membership of all the 30 MFIs licensed by the National Bank of Ethiopia under Proclamation Number 40/1996.  Prior to the Proclamation, some of the members were government projects/schemes and the others were private NGO programmes.

These were transformed into companies limited by shares to mobilize savings from the public and grant loans to the public under the regulatory supervision of the National Bank of Ethiopia.  Since the Proclamation, completely new microfinance companies with no antecedents as NGOs or projects/schemes have been formed and licensed as MFIs and subsequently joined the membership of AEMFI.

Empowering women economically is highly emphasized as a necessary step. Access to finance has always been the priority of MSE promoters be it at start up or for expansion. Is there any MFI with a special window for women entrepreneurs? It is encouraging to see many women are getting access to finance, but there are a lot more that need special facilitation with innovative financial products that suits their situation. Hence, a separate window for such financing scheme might be a breakthrough. I would like to learn more about such initiatives if any.
All the best in your endeavors.
