The EIB Institute together with the EIB are supporting the 4th European Microfinance Day to take place in Brussels on 26 October on the theme: “E=mc2”.

The organisers of the yearly event (the European Microfinance Network -EMN, in cooperation with the European Microfinance Centre -MFC) have adapted Albert Einstein’s formula to microfinance with “E” standing for Entrepreneurship, Empowerment, Employment… which comes as a result of MicroCredit to the square.

For this year’s edition, EMN and MFC will reorganise the central Brussels event after a third edition on which efforts were mainly focused on the members’ local action.

The Brussels event will be held on Friday 26 October.

The European Microfinance Day  was launched in 2015 as a tool to highlight the impact of the microfinance sector in Europe from a social and an economic perspective as well as to raise awareness on the existence and value of microfinance.
