The Global Savings Groups Conference is a biennial event that engages a large and diverse community of stakeholders, develops and promotes improved standards of practice, mobilizes knowledge, strengthens partnerships and alliances, and creates opportunities for cross-organizational learning. Each event in this series has also served as a catalyst to increase the scale, sustainability and impact of Savings Groups in the host country – and region. SG2015, in Zambia, was the third event in the series and engaged close to 400 participants representing 147 organizations from 44 countries.

The SEEP Network is delighted to host the SG2018: The Power of Savings Groups, in collaboration with Conference partners. SG2018 will take place in Rwanda, on May 22-24, and 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, SEEP encourages 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.

Conference Agenda

SG2018 will host Plenaries, Innovation Stations and 22 engaging Peer Learning Sessions around the 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
