Report - 6th European Research Conference on Microfinance
Montpellier Business School, the French National Research Institute for Development (IRD) and the University Paris Dauphine, in cooperation with e-MFP and CERMI, organised the 6th European Research Conference on Microfinance from 3rd to 5th June 2019 in Paris, France with over 130 delegates and speakers attending the event.
A mix of established international researchers and leading practitioners infused the debate around the "New Tools, New Actors: Which aims, values and beneficiaries?" in microfinance. One of the main focuses of the discussions was the challenge of industrialisation and massification, which has been fueled by the increasing use of new technologies as allegedly efficient instruments for fostering financial inclusion worldwide.
