EUROPEAN MICROFINANCE DAY

On October 20 th 2017, at the initiative of the European Microfinance Network (EMN), we celebrated the Third European Microfinance Day, with the aim of raising the public awareness of microfinance, it’s benefits, importance and role in solving key social problems such as unemployment, start-up and development of small businesses or finance the basic needs of people who have difficulties to access banks services. The slogan of this year’s campaign is FAIR FINANCE FOR All, and points to the fact that a significant number of our citizens have no access to financial services, as most banks in Serbia are avoiding to finance small and risky clients. That means that citizens of Serbia wanting to start or develop their entrepreneurial initiative are in a much worse position than most European citizens, regarding access to funding. The concept of this year celebration was in the form of local activities of microfinance institutions that organized different events in their states. About this read at https://goo.gl/KMNrNG
