Dates and venue of the 15th MFC Annual Conference have been announced!

Dear Friends,

We are very pleased to inform you that next MFC Conference will take place in Tbilisi, Georgia from 29-30th May, 2012.

We hope that you will join this important gathering to build partnerships for success of microfinance. Please mark the Conference date in your calendars. We will follow with more information.


As in previous years we would like to ask for your suggestions regarding the MFC annual conference agenda. 

Once considered a socially focused undertaking, microfinance has become a highly diversified business which now shows a broad variety of interests in approaches to finance.  Many questions have been recently raised about its role and impact. Does microfinance help people at all? Is there too much microcredit available?  Is the business focus more relevant than the social concern?  We initiated discussions on these topics in Prague last year and would like to continue in Tbilisi.

What are the workshop and plenary topics that you think should become part of the MFC conference agenda?

If  you would like the agenda to reflect the critical issues faced by your institution, please provide us with your suggestions by January 20th 2012 to

Let us also know if you are interested in presenting your experience as workshop panelist.  Although we do not guarantee that we will respond to each expression of interest, we will be more than happy to consider your candidacy.

Finally, if you would like to become one of the conference sponsors, please contact Iva Hanusova at for information concerning the sponsorship options.

Kind regards

MFC Team
