The ‘Covid-19 Financial Inclusion Compass’:

An e-MFP webinar to present exclusive preliminary findings on the Covid-19 challenges and priorities of the financial inclusion sector

The European Microfinance Platform (e-MFP) is pleased to invite you to a webinar to present the preliminary and pre-publication findings from the third e-MFP Compass survey - a special edition of the survey specifically looking at the challenges Covid-19 is posing to sector stakeholders, and what they prioritise going forward.

Several months into a global crisis with enormous implications for the financial inclusion sector, e-MFP launched a special Covid-19 edition of the Financial Inclusion Compass survey in English, French and Spanish, a genuinely cross-sector look at what challenges different stakeholder groups are facing, what they see as the medium-term priorities to transition out of the crisis, and what a post-Covid sector will look like. Because of the urgency of the issues, while the final report is being written (to be published in all three languages in the coming weeks), we want to first present the initial findings from the mixed-methodology survey via a webinar.

The webinar will be led by Sam Mendelson, lead author of the Compass series, and Financial Inclusion Specialist at e-MFP. And we’re delighted to announce that Mayada El-Zoghbi, Managing Director of the Center for Financial Inclusion (CFI) at Accion, will join to give her perspectives in response, before the session is opened up to Q&A.

We look forward to welcoming you on Monday 13th July to get a unique global perspective on how different sector stakeholders are responding to Covid-19, the challenges being faced, and the medium-term priorities for a post-Covid financial inclusion sector.

Register for the webinar
Date: Monday 13th July
Time: 9-10 am EDT / 1-2 pm GMT / 2-3 pm BST / 3-4 pm CEST
