Danish Forum for Microfinance

Danish Forum for Microfinance is an umbrella organisation that works with capacity building of Danish actors within microfinance, as well as advocacy and information to the general public about microfinance.

Our members consist primarily of representatives from NGOs, private companies and financial institutions.

The goal of the Danish Forum for Microfinance is to strengthen the Danish effort in regards to microfinance in developing countries.

We do this by:

  • Facilitating the sharing of experiences within the field.
  • Arranging courses and seminars about microfinance.
  • Facilitating activities that strengthen the network and collaboration between Danish actors.
  • Promoting microfinance in the media and via advocacy aimed at Danish donors and legislators.
  • Promoting consumer protection and ethically responsible microfinance via our endorsement of The Smart Campaign
