The EUROPEAN MICROFINANCE NETWORK (EMN) is a member-based not-for-profit organisation based in Brussels, which promotes microfinance as a tool to fight social and financial exclusion in Europe through self-employment and the creation of microenterprises. It is the Network’s mission to facilitate capacity building and to carry out advocacy in order to foster the development of its members and the sector.
EMN’s core membership is firstly made up of microfinance Practitioners. These are social purpose organisations delivering financial services to the underserved or facilitating access to such services. The work of the network is also supported by Partners and Corporate Members, which are organisations involved in European microfinance issues; such as national networks, academia, service providers to the sector or banks that support the development of microfinance in Europe. Check out our members’ section if you want to find out more about our members or join the Network.
