AMT provides financial and non-financial services to support the many housing, livelihood and other initiatives undertaken by Muungano groups in informal settlements. Through community-led processes, AMT provides access to finance, and technical assistance – including training in financial management, housing development and business management.
One of the main goals of Muungano and AMT is to support collective decision-making and action by the urban poor. Unlike formal banking and microfinance institutions, AMT positions its financial services within a broader effort to improve the physical and social fabric of urban informal settlements.
We also work for slums to be improved and integrated into the city fabric. We work to influence changes in practice and policy – especially national policy for urban development.
We negotiate, design, and deliver real improvements to people’s lives. And we work with partners in academia, government, and civil society. We know that our unity is our strength.
