April 16, 2018 at 8:40 AM

As a debt collection professional, there’s no doubt that you occasionally feel like you are out in the trenches. The nature of the industry is ever changing, as are the laws and regulations. And you need to stay on top of new technology and trends.

As an industry leader, we’re frequently asked to present at conferences, on a variety of topics. Here’s what’s next on our tour:

MicroFinance South Africa Contact Sessions

MFSA is a representative body of registered and legal entity MicroFinance Credit Providers in South Africa. MFSA keeps members informed with latest industry changes and news through various publications, contact sessions and an annual general meeting.

In 2018, Principa is attending the contact sessions hosted by MicroFinance South Africa. With six, all in different cities across the country, MFSA is ensuring access for all by creating local experiences.

The sessions are informative and update attendees on the latest trends, technology and best practices in the micro-finance industry. This year’s theme is “Service with Care”.

The first four sessions took place in March, in Pretoria and Polokwane, in Durban in April, and in Bloemfontein during the second week of May and were well-received within the industry with many attendees and great feedback.

If you'd like to attend the next session taking place in Cape Town on the 23rd of May, we invite you to join Principa as guests, free of charge. Email us at info@principa.co.za, with the subject line of "MFSA Guest Attendance" and we'll be in touch to arrange the details with you. We look forward to hosting you!
