All over Europe, individuals from some population groups face an increased risk of financial exclusion: the (long-term) unemployed, (economically inactive) women, single parent households, migrants and ethnic minorities, young people, seniors, disabled persons... They encounter particular difficulties in accessing adapted financial services and advice - for business and personal purposes.
Do microfinance providers in Europe really reach out to these excluded target groups? Do they really serve the “non-bankable” part of the population? How many of their clients are women, migrants, young persons or disabled people? How many of them actually belong to excluded, vulnerable parts of the population? And has the microlenders’ outreach to these target groups evolved over time?
