SG2018: The Power of Savings Groups

22 May 2018 to 24 May 2018

About the conference

The RAF Learning Lab is delighted to partner with the SEEP Network as communications partner for the SG2018: The Power of Savings Groups. The conference will offer a platform for attendees to connect, engage and learn from each other about the challenges and opportunities they face in supporting Savings Groups – including VSLAs, SHGs, indigenous savings groups, and other forms of community-based microfinance – worldwide. In this pursuit, the conference will encourage greater use of a wide range of innovative session structures and methodologies that build on emerging and accepted best practices in learning and the dissemination of innovations. 

Technical Tracks

The conference agenda will be organized around four technical tracks:

1. Systemic Approaches to Increase Scale, Sustainability, and Impact

2. Access to Formal Financial Services

3. Expanding Outreach to More Vulnerable and Diverse Populations

4. Savings Groups and Gender-transformative Initiatives
