Personal profile

The aim of my doctoral research is to explore the opportunities and challenges of developing sustainable microfinance provision to small-scale mines in Africa. For microfinance to overcome financial constraints and assist in sectoral development, design must consider the nuances of the environments in which it is being implemented. Therefore, I am examining the characteristics and dynamics of existing artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) financial systems, including the financial considerations of formalisation. Further, I seek to elucidate the linkages between successful microfinance provision and the financial nuances of the ASM sector. Crucially, I am looking to develop a contextual blueprint for the provision of sustainable microfinance services to support ASM.
