In January 2018, Amolo Ng'weno will be taking over from David Porteous as FIBR Project Director. Amolo is the Regional Director of BFA’s Nairobi office and Director of our Finance for Life Team. An early tech entrepreneur in Africa, she understands the entrepreneurial space well, but also spent time as a Deputy Director of the Gates Foundation’s Financial Services for the Poor Program -- as such, Amolo also deeply understands the donor and development community.
As FIBR Project Director, she will work with the FIBR team and partners to pull through useful and productive learnings during the second half of the project. Please join us in welcoming Amolo in this role!
