Oikocredit summer meetings have begun
Oikocredit International staff and MT members present at the AGM
The Oikocredit meetings for the board, cooperative members, staff and SAs began yesterday, Sunday 15 June in Piura, Peru and will conclude on Friday 20 June with the AGM.
Peru is part of the South American Northern Region (SANR) and the regional office is located there. It has a mature microfinance market with very strong supervision and regulation, and is very competitive. Over-indebtedness is a challenge which is monitored regularly by both the national supervisory body of Peru and Oikocredit for its own partners
Oikocredit’s summer meetings and AGM provide participants with the opportunity to meet each other and with staff, share ideas and take decisions on important issues. This year, approximately 90 participants from over 20 different countries and four continents will be present.
Attendees will visit four partners, end-clients and farmers to see first hand the financial and social benefits Oikocredit brings. The partners comprise three fair trade cooperatives and one microfinance institution.
