- Microfinance has become a large banking segment as well as a widely practiced development tool. Presently several hundred million poor people have been provided with access to savings, loans, insurance and payment services. However, at the same time there are still billions of people that remain out of reach by microfinance providers. The present microfinance industry is confronted with a broad range of dilemmas and unsolved problems, puzzles when it comes to the governance and management of MFIs remain, and the debate about the development effect of microfinance continues. These and other issues will be discussed by researchers and practitioners during the conference, which will be held at the University of Agder (UiA).
