Save for a better future ! Save for tomorrow ! Saving is life !
These are the slogans that are chanted during this world savings week.
Every year, SBFIC East Africa with its partners celebrates International Savings Week. All the SBFIC staff with our partners in Rwanda, Burundi and Tanzania go on field and join the local people in this celebration. Songs, dances and sensitization speeches on savings mark this event. It’s both an inspiring and rewarding experience.
The local population seems to have understood and owned this culture of saving. This is an advantage and a positive influence on the economy of a country. On October 31st, we also celebrate the World Savings Day. This is a very important event in the microfinance sector and also for the local population.
