The introductory meeting will be the first time all participants come together. This time, the group was composed of 12 people from Austria, France, Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands.
The presentations by the Maanaveeya team on its portfolio, challenges and opportunities were followed by a lively interaction until it was time to close to hit the road again. This time I was heading to Odisha with my group of 6 participants, and the others were off to Tamil Nadu. Everybody was very excited to go to the field and see Maanaveya’s partners and microfinance in practice.
