The Mastercard Foundation Fund for Rural Prosperity conducted its Ethiopia information workshop for the 2017/2018 rolling competition in Addis Ababa on Thursday 21 September, 2017. This workshop was aimed at registrants and interested potential applicants seeking support for their innovative and scalable financial inclusion projects. Similar workshops are being organised in other countries in Africa.
The workshop morning session was held at the Jupiter International Hotel in Addis Ababa. Rose Ndungu, KPMG Director, took the attendees through a detailed presentation. The presentation included a view of the new format of the 2017/2018 competition and its features, informed participants about the eligibility criteria and the process of applying. This was followed by an engaging question and answer session.
All financial service focused organisations that have innovative projects which can transform the lives of those living in rural or agricultural areas in Africa are encouraged to visit www.frp.org to register and apply for support. The second call for applications ends on 5 October 2017.
