GUARANT International Organized The MFC Conference For The Fifth Time


Nov 11, 2015

GUARANT International organized the fifth annual conference for their regular client, the Microfinance Centre (MFC), from November 5th to 6th. This year, the conference returned to Prague after four years and was held at the Corinthia Hotel in Prague. In recent years, GUARANT International also organized this event for the MFC in foreign destinations such as Georgia, Montenegro and Turkey. The 18th MFC Annual Conference was attended by 450 delegates from around the world.

The main motto of the conference was "Employment, Youth and Investment: What Can Microfinance Do?" The aim was to discuss, for example, questions about the role of microfinance business start-ups, innovative ways to encourage young people, new trends in offering products related to housing and the role of microfinance in community development.

This year, in addition to traditional workshops and plenary lectures, an unusual new format called "un-conference session" was tried out. These meetings were used mainly for the possibility of discussing issues relating to microfinance with experts from their field of practice.

An interesting social program was prepared for conference participants, which included a gala dinner in the state rooms of the Kaiserstejn Palace in Lesser Town Square.

The Microfinance Centre is a regional center of microfinance resources and networks. They bring together a total of 104 organizations (including 78 monetary financial institutions) from 32 countries in Central Europe and Asia, which together support more than 800,000 clients with low incomes. Their mission is to contribute to reducing poverty and developing human potential by promoting a socially-oriented and sustainable microfinance sector that provides adequate financial and non-financial services to a large number of poor families and micro-entrepreneurs.

GUARANT International, almost a quarter of a century old, has continued their success with clients in organizing international congresses and conferences in Central and Eastern Europe. Along with perfect knowledge of the Czech and European environment, clients are also guaranteed a high level of expertise, precision and professionalism. With a team of 50 professionals, GUARANT International annually organizes 60-80 events in the Czech Republic and abroad.
