Mi-fi Day 2016 – 19th of April

Microfinance – a cure all solution to poverty? Another way to gain profit from the poor? A tool for development? What exactly is Microfinance? To answer some of these questions and introduce what Microfinance is, Mi-fi has organized the first Mi-fi Day.

Our overall question is: Does Microfinance help build and / or develop local capacities where they are needed most?
