The Sustainable Microfinance and Development Program comes to Rwanda in April 2019, in two one-week workshops entirely devoted to Savings Groups. The SMDP Rwanda will take place in Kigali and is offered by the University of New Hampshire, Carsey School of Public Policy and delivered by VSL Associates.
The SMDP Savings Group (SG) courses are designed for institutions and individuals who are committed to experimenting with the methodology but with the intention to create efficient and effective SG programmes, operating at low-cost and significant scale, leading to a long-term output in which groups spontaneously replicate at high quality and can do so in both Islamic and non-Islamic contexts.
Week One: April 15-19, 2019 Savings Groups: Programme Design and Implementation Management
Week Two: April 22-26, 2019 Savings Groups: Introduction to the SAVIX Management Information System
