Who said What!
“As an ACE-II / USAID grant recipient, AMA proved to be an outstanding partner – successfully implementing a range of innovative activities to raise awareness on agricultural finance, and building the capacity of its DFI members to better serve the agriculture sector.”
“AMA publications and reports are accepted as reference documents and are very helpful for the sector practitioners, donors and stakeholders for their information and decision-making. These are very famous at national and regional levels.”
“I remember in 2011 when the sector players got together to revitalize AMA under the leadership of AMA management and we were not thinking that AMA will reach to the stage
where it is now within just few years”.
Afghanistan Microfinance Association (AMA) is the national network of Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) in Afghanistan. Realizing the need and relevance of a national level network in the sector, MISFA and its partner MFIs jointly decided to start the AMA in 2005. It has been operating as a coordinating body among all key stakeholders in the sector. As an institution AMA has got a few distinctive elements such as; an independent legal entity, strong memberships of the DFIs, positive relationships with key national stakeholders, potential regional and global exchanges and continued assistance from MISFA and institutional support from USAID/FAIDA since 2011.
