Our Story

Micro WATCH was created as an effective response to the growing cries for a medium where all issues related to microfinance can be channeled to; where issues of microfinance can be highlighted in its entirety. The advent of the Micro WATCH was timely and remains second to none. It aims at educating and engaging the public about the operations of the microfinance sector in the country. The sector includes: Microfinance Companies, Credit unions, Rural Bank, Savings and loans, FNGO’s, Money Lenders and Susu Collectors.

We are focused on engaging great personalities in the sector, bringing to you all happenings and covering Annual General Meetings of various stakeholders in the sector. We have realized that it will be very good to give corporate institutions and various businesses coverage for their various events and programmes. This is an opportunity to promote their image on a platform which is purposely aimed at targeted audience.
