The 2nd Regional Credit Information Sharing (CIS) Conference was held in Nairobi on September 24th and September 25th 2013. This is the second conference of its kind, the first one having been held in July 2011 in Nairobi, Kenya.
This second conference emphasized the overall goal of delivering information capital in order to facilitate extension of reasonably priced credit in Africa and by so doing, catalyze economic growth. The conference theme was, “Credit Information Sharing: Unlocking Access to Affordable Credit.” In addition to promoting public awareness about CIS, the conference sought to promote knowledge sharing and dissemination of best practices in CIS. It also sought to provide a platform where progress made in implementing CIS in different countries could be shared.
