European Microfinance Week (EMW), hosted by European Microfinance Platform (e-MFP), is one of the top events in the microfinance calendar and a unique meeting point for microfinance professionals working worldwide. EMW brings together all sectors of the inclusive finance sector including consultants & support service providers, investors, multilateral & national development agencies, NGOs and researchers. With an unparalleled program and prestigious speakers, the event is widely recognized for its high-quality sessions and excellent networking opportunities. Last year's event attracted close to 500 participants from 58 countries.
As usual the first day, 29 November, will be “Action Group” Day where our specialized working groups meet to build on their months of work by holding in-depth discussions and training on their focus topics such as: inclusive green finance, digital innovations, small and medium enterprise (SME) finance and rural finance.
This year over 30 November and 1 December, the e-MFP offers a fantastic line-up with three plenaries:
Microfinance for Housing (the topic of the 2017 European Microfinance Award);
Women clients ≠ women empowerment: Beyond the numbers;
Microfinance: positioning ourselves for the next decade.
Over these two days more than 80 organizations will feature in over 30 sessions covering a range of front line topics.
