European Microfinance Week 2019 will take place in Luxembourg from 20-22 November at Neumünster Abbey, with the European Microfinance Award being presented at the European Investment Bank in the evening of Thursday 21 November 2019.

European Microfinance Week, organised by the Luxembourg-based European Microfinance Platform (e-MFP), is a key industry event hosting high level and in-depth discussions by all sectors of the financial inclusion community working worldwide. Welcoming 500 professionals each year, it is a unique meeting point and networking forum. The three-day event attracts leading experts, opinion-leaders and policy-makers to its plenaries and workshop sessions tackling front line topics.
