“About 60% of KMF borrowers are women. Our constant task with KMF is not only to provide them with affordable financing, including in the rural areas, but also to help them adapt to market life, suggest how to develop their business properly and without losses, and financially support family and children. Therefore, for many years we have invested heavily in training women, developing their skills and competencies, we hire experts and deliver business trainings for them as part of a financial literacy program, ”- commented Asel Shegebayeva, General Director of “KMF-Demeu” Fund.
In addition to useful and practical information, the conference participants received inspiration and networking opportunities.
