AMSA's Danie Erasmus retires
Danie Erasmus, who opened the first micro lending office in the AMSA stable, and who had been AMSA's regional representative for Pretoria for many years, retired from AMSA and the industry at the end of 2006.
Danie will be remembered and honoured as a pioneer in the industry who had in many ways, and under difficult circumstances and continually changing legislation, contributed to the establishment and development of the industry to its present status as a core component of South Africa's financial sector. Danie will especially be remembered for his innovative thinking and persistence.
Danie is thanked for his esteemed and valuable contribution to AMSA and the fledgling micro finance industry, and is wished everything of the best for the road ahead.
