    E=mc²: an investigation of the exponential impact of microcredit

    The European Microfinance Network (EMN) and the Microfinance Centre (MFC) are pleased to invite you to the Brussels-based event to celebrate the 4th European Microfinance Day (EMD)

    On the occasion of the 4th European Microfinance Day Campaign, EMN and MFC are proud to announce that this year’s Brussels-based event will take place on 26 October. A panel debate will be organised in line with the 4th EMD tagline:

    “E=mc² – an investigation of the exponential impact of microcredit”

    The European Microfinance Day (EMD) aims to raise awareness of microfinance as a tool to fight social and financial exclusion in Europe. In this edition of the EMD, EMN and MFC organise a panel debate involving several practitioners, an impact investor and a public authority representative to debate on the social impact of microfinance and how can this impact be further developed.

    The support of innovative funding sources (either public or private) will be fundamental for the further & good development of the sector and creating new opportunities for the “missing entrepreneurs”.

    The panel debate will be followed by the launching ceremony of Helenos, the first private equity fund for inclusive finance in Europe.

    Bridging Financing Gaps For Greater Health Equity and Impact: The 2018 Global Financing Facility Annual Report

    Every year, in 50 countries across the world, more than 5 million mothers and children die from preventable conditions and their economies lose billions of dollars to poor health and nutrition. Inadequate funding is one of the reasons for the slow progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Launched in Addis Ababa in July 2015, the Global Financing Facility in support of Every Woman Every Child (GFF) is driving new approaches to financing. It strives to recognize that countries themselves are the engines of progress and that the role of external assistance is to support countries both to get more results from the existing resources and to increase the total volume of financing. It accomplishes these goals by increasing efficiency, mobilizing public domestic resources, linking and aligning concessional financing and external resources, and leveraging the private sector.
    To understand the GFF model, discuss its direction and reflect on challenges so far and ways of addressing these, the Center for Global Development (CGD) and the GFF invite you to the launch of the GFF’s annual report in London. Through a series of presentations and a moderated panel discussion, we will highlight some of the report’s key findings as well as the results of a new impact assessment, offering participants an opportunity to ask questions and engage in discussion.
    With the success that the GFF has already achieved, and an upcoming replenishment moment in November, the event provides an opportune time to consider past lessons learned and evaluate the GFF’s potential future impact.

    Financial Inclusion in a Digital Economy

    Guru Arjan Dev Institute of Development Studies (IDSAsr) has organized the 9th IDSAsr National Seminar on the theme Financial Inclusion in the Digital Economy. The seminar will aim to reorient the process of financial inclusions towards sustainability, which in turn has the potential to impact the way people think.

    Millions of families live on the border between self-sufficiency and destitution, and financial exclusion pushes them in the wrong direction. That’s why the government of India has set the goal of establishing a banking outlet in every village.

    The seminar will help to equip people with knowledge and skills making them more competent and confident while at the same time increasing their opportunities for leading a healthy and productive lifestyle in harmony with nature and with concern for social values, gender equity and cultural diversity.
