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).

This year over 30 November and 1 December, we offer a fantastic line-up with three plenary sessions: Housing Finance (the topic of the 2017 European Microfinance Award), Empowering Women Through Inclusive Finance and The Future of Microfinance.

Over these two days more than 80 organisations will feature in over 20 sessions covering a range of front line topics such as:

For the first time too we’ll also feature ‘TED-Talk’ style sessions on diverse topics including chatbots, data management in rural finance and client-centric business models.

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.

We look forward to hearing the announcement of the winner of the European Microfinance Award on Microfinance for Housing during the ceremony on 30th November to which all EMW participants are invited.

 Block 29 November – 1 December in your agenda!
