AMFIU lobbies government at various levels to influence it in the development of an appropriate policy framework for microfinance practitioners. This is done based on researched data. The MDI Act (2003) for example was a result of AMFIU’s lobbying efforts. Currently, AMFIU is lobbying and advocating for a regulatory framework for tier 4 institutions.
AMFIU also promotes and supports formation of District Microfinance Committees (DMFCs). The program works to create replicas of the National Microfinance Forum (MFF). The committees are supposed to meet and discuss issues that are affecting their District/region and through AMFIU such issues are looked into by the National Microfinance Forum.
