On behalf of the European Microfinance Platform (e-MFP), we’re delighted to present this report that provides a terrific overview of everything that took place at European Microfinance Week (EMW) 2018 – which this year brought together 450 participants from 69 countries. Growing and evolving each time, EMW is the annual forum run by e-MFP, a member-led organisation that comprises over 130 investors, multilateral & national development agencies, consultants & support service providers, NGOs, FSPs, and researchers to promote cooperation among organisations working in developing countries by facilitating high-level debate, driving knowledge-sharing, and developing partnerships.
Over its 12 years, the Platform’s remit has grown alongside the financial inclusion sector as a whole – reflecting new products, players and practices that the Platform’s members and other sector stakeholders present and debate at EMW.
As you’ll see within this report, EMW had three plenaries: an opening one with the three European Microfinance Award 2018 finalists, as well as a keynote address by Microsave’s Graham Wright; ‘Where next for microfinance: a view from The Founders’; and, to close the conference, a first-ever Oxford-style debate, addressing the motion ‘This House believes there’s no room left for the little guy: A debate on Tier 2 & 3 MFIs’.
