    The 2019 National Microfinance Conference that was scheduled to take place in Nairobi from the 27th to 29th March 2019 has been rescheduled to the month of June 2019. In spite of the overwhelming interest in this event, this change is necessitated due to a request from the Guest of honor and other key partners to postpone the conference as earlier planned due to circumstances beyond their control. For this reason, AMFI is pleased to announce that we have extended early bird registration of Kshs 20,000 PP to May 3rd 2019 and after that the rate will go up to Kshs 25,000 PP. Online registration is still open through our website www.amfikenya.com/index.php Institutions also have an opportunity to sponsor the event as per the attached sponsorship packages as well as an opportunity to speak during the conference. If you would like to discuss this further, kindly revert and the AMFI-K team will organize to meet with you. Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconveniences this may cause.
