Organzied by the Microcredit Summit Campaign, the 18th Microcredit Summit will take place on March 15-17, 2016 at Jumeirah Emirates Towers in Dubai.
The 18th Microcredit Summit will be an opportunity for a wide range of stakeholders to promote best practices and engage in a thoughtful discussion around the challenges and opportunities in using microfinance as a tool that can contribute to ending extreme poverty. This summit will serve as a platform for innovations that use microfinance and other financial services and products as tools that facilitate movement out of poverty.
About the Campaign
Since 1997, the Microcredit Summit Campaign has been leading, supporting, and guiding the microfinance field to address failures in reaching the very poor. The success of the first phase of the campaign, during which those with microloans grew from reaching 7.6 million of the world's poorest families in 1997 to more than 100 million in 2007, fueled the decision to extend the campaign. The campaign's goals for 2015 were launched at the 2006 Global Microcredit Summit in Halifax, Canada.
