Live from European Microfinance Week: Watch Recordings of Friday’s Two Plenary Sessions

NextBillion is covering European Microfinance Week as a media partner, and we’re planning to live-stream two plenary sessions on Friday, Dec. 1, via Facebook Live. You can watch the broadcasts in real-time on our Facebook page (while you’re there, feel free to “like” the page for updates on this and future live broadcasts). We’ll embed the videos in this post after the sessions are over, if you’re not able to watch live – the recorded videos will also reside on our Facebook page after the broadcasts end.
