EFC Uganda is a member of Proxfin, an international network for dialogue and study made up of 26 microfinance institutions from four continents and coordinated by Développement international Desjardins. Founded in 2006, Proxfin aims at promoting best practices in inclusive finance and improving access to financial services by all. Taken as a whole, Proxfin member institutions reach ten million families and entrepreneurs providing them with access to secure, diversified financial services that fit their needs.
In 2015, Proxfin held its annual meeting in Bangkok, Thailand, on the topic of governance. The event, which took place in September alongside the 25th annual forum of the Asian Confederation of Credit Unions (ACCU), provided an opportunity for Proxfin members to share their strategies and best practices related to good governance. On this occasion, EFC Uganda’s Chairperson, Mr. Charles Nalyaali, was elected on the Proxfin Management Committee. The next annual meeting of Proxfin will take place alongside the third International Summit of Cooperatives in Quebec City, Canada, from October 11 to 13, 2016. www.proxfin.org/en
