Oikocredit Managing Director on realising impact and working for a more just society

At the start of 2022, with the Covid-19 pandemic receding, one of my keenest wishes was to meet more people involved in our cooperative’s work face to face: partners, members, investors and colleagues in the different Oikocredit offices around the world. Equally, I wanted others to be able to connect and engage in person, after many months of lockdown. I’m pleased my hopes for us all to meet and work together more in face-to-face settings were fulfilled.

In 2022 we successfully progressed important change initiatives for our organisation by bringing to fruition our new capital-raising model and 2022-2026 strategy. In 2023 the roll-out of our new capital-raising model will be followed by a new inflow strategy targeting investors to join us in investing responsibly and becoming part of our investor movement.

Oikocredit’s Managing Director, Mirjam ‘t Lam, shares her thoughts as the New Year begins.
