Investors Pitch Desk for Microfinance Institutions in Nigeria to take place in September


The Investors Pitch Desk is aimed at establishing a regulated wholesale institution to fund Microfinance Banks in Nigeria and increasing Access to Finance. The event is organized by The Microfinance Association which is the global professional body for the microfinance sector.

The microfinance sector in Nigeria is a viable, prosperous, and a growing industry.Of those living below the poverty line, the majority remain financially excluded, producing a massive potential demand for microfinance in Nigeria. One key characteristic that makes Nigeria extremely attractive from an investment perspective is its huge market potential. Nigeria has a population of 200 million.

The total demand for micro, small and medium enterprise credit in Nigeria is high. Nigeria can prove strategic to commercial debt providers if the right financing and technical assistance decisions are taken.

For investors looking for early stage investment opportunities, there exist some high potential MFIs in Nigeria which they could take early stakes.

There are currently over 1000 microfinance banks in Nigeria, and a lot of these institutions need financing.

International and local investors that are interested in partnering with a group of international stakeholders in developing a wholesale institution that will fund a number of dynamic and profitable institutions in the Microfinance Sector, should join us for an online pitch deck presentation where you will hear from a group of dedicated professionals that are interested in the growth of the sector in Nigeria.

Potential investors would also hear from a distinguished panel that have assisted in implementing wholesale institutions in Asia and Latin America.
