Thanks to Nidhi I have found this email list (never heard about it before).
Let me introduce myself first: I have a software development company in
Kampala, Uganda. I have been working for the Dutch development cooperation
in Burkina Faso (5 years) and Uganda (3 years). One year ago I started my
own company. We have a micro-finance product on the market that is being
used in Uganda and recently also in Egypt and Jordan. If you are
interested, have a look at www.loanperformer.com. I also do consultancies
on request (see www.verkoyen.org/cv.html).
