Over 150 guests celebrate AMFIU's 10th anniversary in Jinja. The day was May 3rd 2006. The place was Jinja Nile Resort Hotel. Attendance was a cross-section of over 150 important people. Excitement filled the place. Each year since 1996 AMFIU has been gathering for annual workshop and Annual General Meeting (the author is one of the privileged few who have attended all the annual functions of AMFIU). This year, It was a time to reflect on the birth and growth of a microfinance industry with so many achievements just in ten years!
The highlights of the celebration were, among others, awards from World Bank- CGAP program, awards to MFI Best entrepreneurs, awards to ?Friends of AMFIU? (i. e. national and international development partners) and launching of an AMFIU 10-year booklet and video documentary ending with the cutting of a huge cake.
