Three key sessions from three days of discussions at European Microfinance Week


European Microfinance Week is always a whirlwind of activity and insights, and this year has been no exception. As a media partner at the event, NextBillion covered some of the key sessions ­– here we highlight three of them, one from each day of the event.

Let’s start with Friday’s must-see plenary, which was streamed live – we’ve embedded the recorded video below. With the provocative topic of “Responsible Client Choices in Finance: Whose Responsibility Is It?” the panel included five of the most insightful (and often opinionated) voices in microfinance. (Disclaimer: The participants adopted opposing viewpoints for the purposes of a debate – they may or may not actually agree with the positions they’re arguing): 

  • Daniel Rozas, European Microfinance Platform (e-MFP), Moderator
  • Mayada El-Zoghbi, CFI at Accion
  • Roshaneh ZafarKashf Foundation
  • Gerhard Coetzee, CGAP
  • Timothy Ogden, Financial Access Initiative

Watch the video below – or if you prefer, check out our Twitter feed, where we live-tweeted from the event. And scroll down for insights from two other key sessions at the conference, highlights from Wednesday and Thursday.
