European Microfinance Week 2017

Wednesday, November 29, 2017 to Friday, December 1, 2017

European Microfinance Week (EMW), hosted by 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 recognised for its high quality sessions and excellent networking opportunities. Last year’s event attracted close to 500 participants from 58 countries (check out the previous edition here).

As usual the first day, 29 November,  will be ‘Action Group’ Day  where our specialised 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, SME finance and rural finance.

This year over 30 November and 1 December, we offer a fantastic line-up with three plenaries: “Microfinance for housing finance” (the topic of this year’s European Microfinance Award), “Women clients ≠ women empowerment: Beyond the numbers” and “Microfinance: positioning ourselves for the next decade”. Over these two days more than 80 organisations will feature in over 30 sessions covering a range of front line topics and for the first time too, we’ll also feature a TED-style session on digital and customer-centric solutions.
