The European Microfinance Day initiative was launched in 2015 as a tool to highlight the impact of the microfinance sector in Europe from a social and economic perspective.

The main objectives of the European Microfinance Day are:

  • To raise awareness among European citizens on the existence of microfinance and its value in fighting unemployment and social exclusion.
  • To draw the attention of European media to how microfinance works in Europe and how it supports and helps the unemployed and European citizens excluded from the traditional financial sector.
  • To exchange experiences within the European microfinance sector by giving visibility to the work of EMN & MFC members.
  • To allow local members to draw the spotlight on their achievements and their missions at the local level
