About Thematic Donor Working Groups

Coordinated by the MFW4A Secretariat and led by donor partners, thematic working groups meet in person and through the www.mfw4a.org platform to discuss developments in specific areas of financial sector development on the African continent. More than 220 representatives from 23 institutions participate in these Groups which allow for a regular exchange of information and enhance synergies among donors and development partners to help identify possible opportunities for collaboration on specific projects and programs. Current working groups include Access to Finance, Agricultural and Rural Finance, Capital Market Development, Housing Finance, Mobile Banking, Regional Financial Integration, and Remittances. These working groups allow for a regular exchange of information amongst donors to identify possible overlaps of project interventions and the opportunity for collaboration on specific projects.
