It's now a tradition that the European Microfinance Week opens with a plenary session featuring the finalists of the European Microfinance Award, the €100,000 prize awarded by the Luxembourg Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs.

This year on the topic of "Financial Inclusion through Technology", the Award aims to highlight how financial services providers (FSPs) can use technology innovations to expand outreach, broaden product offerings, improve the client experience, and increase operating efficiency, all guided by an unwavering focus on socially responsible finance. In a lively discussion together with sector experts, the 3 finalists of the €100,000 European Microfinance Award present their initiatives, discuss on the main challenges faced by their institutions when going digital and reflect on the (r)evolution the inclusive finance sector is going through thanks to financial technologies.
