Key lessons from the visit:
1. Microfinance institutions play an important role in the advocacy of this sector in our countries by having to take constant actions toward specific legal framework that are more favourable to micro entrepreneurs or to their financing;
2. Non-financial services bring an important benefit for the micro entrepreneur as it helps them to develop more stable business (e.g. consultancy on commercial, financial and business development areas, specific coaching, legal advising, etc);
3. There are different solutions in order to provide more than just microloans and that we need to find them in our specific economic and social environments (e.g. how ADIE found the volunteers support).
