MicroFinance South Africa


Since its inception in 1996, MFSA has played an important role in creating strong cohesion among individuals and organizations within the industry and encouraging legislative and regulatory changes which leads to positive outcomes for the industry as a whole.

MFSA positioned itself to legitimately act as one voice. This is how members are thus protected from victimization and share in the collective benefit generated through the association by all its members

Together, we have the power to amplify our impact and create meaningful and lasting change to move forward into the future.

We provide a wide range of specialist services namely, but not limited:

  • Advocacy

  • Industry-wide representation

  • Research and development

  • Thought leadership

  • Reputation management (enhancing perceptions of microfinance credit providers within the macroeconomic space)

  • Business support, information sharing and industry guidance

  • Networking platforms

  • General business support


 As an Association, a major focus is Operational Efficiency, we thus provide a platform for collaboration and networking among our members. We facilitate the sharing of best practices and ideas, and we provide educational and training opportunities to help our members improve their skills and deepen their knowledge for the benefit of their success and the growth of the industry.

At our core, we are driven by a spirit of community and mutual support. We believe that by working together, we can achieve more than any one of us could on our own. We are proud to be part of this association, to represent our members, and to be making a positive difference in South Africa.
