AFMIN and its members aim to leverage their knowledge, resources and results on the ground to have a major impact on microfinance services for low income populations by :
Building consensus around performance indicators and standards in microfinance, to ensure that the sector maintains a high standard of performance that will enable MFIs to achieve sustainability and become integrated in the financial systems of their countries, while retaining a main focus on providing services to the poor.
Leveraging knowledge and best practices. Lateral learning among practitioners is one of the most effective ways to build institutional capacity in microfinance. In addition, networks are able to coordinate the offer of technical services from external agencies or donors, to ensure that capacity building support is channelled to institutions that are able to use this support to expand their operations.
Creating a strong and unified voice for policy change actions and consensus building around policies that work for the poor majority. Some of the stronger country-level networks in Africa have been deeply involved and consulted in policy decisions affecting microfinance. Networks are formed and spearheaded by practitioners who are the true experts who can speak authoritatively about the changes needed to create an enabling environment for microfinance in their countries.
