FAST in collaboration with the USAID funded VEGA/IESC Lebanon Investment in Microfinance (LIM) Program recently hosted a 2-day roundtable event in Beirut, Lebanon on June 24th and 25th, 2014. The event brought together important figures from the Lebanese microfinance sector with international FAST-member agricultural finance experts to discuss the opportunities and challenges facing investment in the Lebanese agricultural sector.

FAST thanks all those who attended our Annual General Meeting (AGM), held alongside the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) event, which took place in Seattle, Washington State, from April 24-27. FAST was also proud to co-present a lunch event at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation alongside CSAF and the Initiative for Smallholder Finance. At the AGM, FAST described how we have implemented our new organizational strategy and financial literacy tools.

For the second phase of the 2014 FAST Board Elections process, FAST is now inviting current FAST Members to cast their vote for six Board of Directors positions. We thank all participants for submitting their nominations and wish them well in the next phase of the election.
