Plenary sessions about “Microfinance for housing finance”, “Women clients ≠ women empowerment: Beyond the numbers” and “Microfinance: positioning ourselves for the next decade” will be organized, along with workshops held by leading speakers.
This annual event is organized by the European Microfinance Platform (e-MFP) and is supported by the Government of Luxembourg.
