In April 2010, more than 2000 delegates from over 40 countries will join Nobel Prize Laureate Muhammad Yunus at the Africa/Middle East Regional Microcredit Summit in Nairobi, Kenya.
In June 2009, 850 delegates from 35 countries joined Colombian President Álvaro Uribe and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Muhammad Yunus at the Latin America/Caribbean Regional Microcredit Summit in Cartagena, Columbia. Delegates assessed progress toward achieving the Microcredit Summit’s goals for 2015, shared innovations to overcome current challenges and networked to further their mission.
MCS partnered with Banca de las Oportunidades – an institution committed to transforming microfinance in Colombia. Together we held another successful summit. We invite you to take a look at the complete list of sponsorship benefits offered including a few new unique opportunities.
One of the elements that made this Summit a watershed moment for the field was the inclusion, for the first time ever, of the plenary titled: Breaking the Rules of Microfinance to Better End Poverty: Innovations from Around the World.
The Spanish Agency of International Cooperation for Development (AECID), a 2009 sponsor, purchased a package which included having their logo displayed on the banner in the plenary hall. This was seen by more than 800 delegates at each plenary session.
