Collaboration and initiatives in the social impact sector

This newsletter edition focuses on some of the latest events, discussions and initiatives at Oikocredit.

We first highlight Oikocredit’s Annual General Meeting (AGM), which took place on 11 June. Here you can learn about key decisions that Oikocredit members voted on, including not paying a dividend for 2019. You can then find out how we are ‘fighting energy poverty’ in a recent interview with our Renewable Energy Manager.

The effects of coronavirus can be seen across the world, especially in the low-income communities we aim to serve. So we have been busy collaborating with like-minded organisations and, for example, recently signed a memorandum to align the response of microfinance investors to the crisis. We are also continuing to take several other initiatives to support our partners. You can read about these initiatives on our designated Covid-19 page.

And lastly, we now offer an accompanying article with our quarterly facts and figures, which provides additional information and context to the numbers.
