The European Microfinance Network (EMN) and the Microfinance Centre (MFC) are inviting all microfinance practioners in Europe to participate in the Microfinance Survey 2018-2019 (see previous edition).
While fully aware of the current challenges you are facing, we decided to launch the survey because, now more than ever, information sharing and transparency are key to enhancing the sustainable development of the microfinance sector. Your data will provide us with key elements to advocate for adequate measures to support European MFIs in the uncertain months to come.
Your contribution is of primary importance and we are happy to offer flexible deadline conditions where needed to allow you to participate in this troubled context.
How can you contribute?
You can share your data with us in two alternative ways:
1. You can download, fill in, and send us back the questionnaire in Excel available in Albanian, Bosnian, Bulgarian, English, French, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Romanian, and Spanish.
2. You can access and fill in the online questionnaire in English. Feel free to print and use the Excel questionnaire in your language as a guide (see above).
What are the benefits of getting involved?
- Free access will be given to the ATLAS platform* where you will be able to benchmark your key indicators against global and European averages.
- A set of dissemination products (infographic, executive summary translated in several languages) will be made available, which you will be able to share with your national policymakers/stakeholders to highlight the key role you are playing within the European inclusive finance sector.
Deadline & contact
The deadline for completion of the survey is 10 June 2020. However, given the current situation we can offer some more flexibility to allow for broader participation.
If you would like to discuss some flexibility in the deadline or if you need any clarification, please contact Justyna Pytkowska at firstname.lastname@example.org
*After the official release of the report and only for MFIs that authorise the sharing of their data with the ATLAS platform
