e-MFP membership is a must for European microfinance professionals working in developing countries. e-MFP offers great networking, promoting active cooperation between members which furthers new opportunities.
e-MFP has three different types of membership: full, associate (institution or individual) and sponsor.
- Full membership is open to organisations, with headquarters in Europe, who support microfinance in developing countries.
- Associate membership is open to any entity or individual involved in the development of the microfinance sector, within or outside Europe.
- Sponsor - a body that does not meet the criteria to become a full or associate member or that does not want to become a member but wishes to support specific activities of e-MFP may become a Sponsor.
Applications for membership are reviewed by the e-MFP Membership Committee. To apply for individual membership send your cv and a short letter of motivation to firstname.lastname@example.org. Organisations applying for membership must complete the membership application form and return it to email@example.com.
