Yesterday a group of finance students (Master in Advanced Finance and Executive Master en Dirección Financiera) started their 10-day trip to Ghana on a FSF project (Financiers without Borders). This is their 2nd trip to Ghana, the first trip took place in June this year.

During this trip, our students will meet with the Director of Microfinance Unit in the Central Bank of Ghana, and the President of GHAMFIN, the MFIs network of the country, the Presidente & Vicepresidente and other members of ASSFIN, and various finance NGOs. The objective is to better understand the investment environment and opportunities of microfinance in Ghana and how to cope with the country´s new investment regulations.
