About the author 

The European Microfinance Platform (e-MFP) is the leading network of European organisations and individuals active in the microfinance/financial inclusion sector in developing countries. Now in its tenth year, it has grown to 130 members from all geographic regions and specialisations of the European microfinance community.

e-MFP fosters activities which increase global access to affordable, quality, sustainable and inclusive financial services for the un(der)banked by driving knowledge-sharing, partnership development and innovation. The Platform achieves this through its diverse publications, numerous year-round expert Action Groups, the annual European Microfinance Week which attracts over 400 top stakeholders representing dozens of countries from the sector, the prestigious annual European Microfinance Award and many other activities.

e-MFP's vision is to become the microfinance focal point in Europe linking with the South through its members.
