About Event

Accion Microfinance Bank Financial Inclusion series, for the last two years, have been bringing together over 250 participants that include: Industry C-Suite Executives, Policy Makers, Fintech Start-Ups, Donors, Funders, and International Development Professionals, to discuss the latest trends, challenges and solutions that are driving the financial inclusion space in Nigeria.

Digital technologies and Fintechs have dominated the conversations on previous occasions. Last year's event under the theme "Digitization as a tool for deepening financial inclusion, the role for regulation" provided participants with perspectives and insights on the policy initiatives that could enable digital finance initiatives and innovations to flourish in Nigeria. With the industry luminaries, and key decision-makers in attendance, this year's half-day seminar provides participants with excellent opportunities for networking, peer learning, getting expert insights, and practitioner success stories.

Under the theme "Re-emerging Microfinance Banks: The Digital Reality". The third Edition of the Accion Mfb Financial Inclusion Seminar 2019, that will hold on 11th December 2019, examines the following topics:

i. Building an Ecosystem of DFS Players, and opportunities for MFI collaboration;

ii. Developing a digital mindset-attracting and retaining skills

1. Building an Ecosystem of DFS Players, and opportunities for MFI collaboration:

The advent of digital financial services and proliferation of tools/technologies such as AI-powered credit algorithms, Robo Advice, blockchain, Open APIs, etc present a unique opportunity to shape and scale the microfinance sector in unprecedented ways. This fireside discussion shall highlight opportunities and pitfalls for collaboration and partnerships facing microfinance institutions. Participants shall be provided with exciting insights, thoughts, and predictions, on how microfinance institutions can leverage from their unique competencies to collaborate with new and existing large players in the ecosystem to drive financial inclusion.

2. Developing a digital mindset-attracting and retaining skills:

As Innovation is spurring rapid change in the Microfinance industry and as processes become automated and digital, microfinance banks need to fundamentally rethink the way they manage talent. MFI staff often think that it is ultimately up to the IT unit to take responsibility for all aspects of going digital. However, re-skilling is required for most MFI staff especially in the areas of digital marketing, data analysis and digital product development. Panelists during this session shall provide insights and perspectives on the following key questions:

i: What are the new human resource needs when going digital?

ii: What HR policies shall need to change to re-orient organizational cultures from traditional systems to digital mindsets?

iii: What approach should Microfinance Institutions take when re-orienting staff into a digital culture? Is it a total revamp or should it be incremental? If Incremental which processes should we start with?

iv: How does this change redefine what "career" means within our organization?

v: Is job security being threatened by technological advances? How do we then grow and retain our employees in the digital era?
