Microfinance Centre for Central and Eastern Europe and the New Independent State
MFC is a grass-root network of over 100 member institutions that play an active role in shaping the microfinance industry in the region of Central and Eastern Europe and the New Independent States. MFC members range from banks, non-governmental organizations, social and commercial investors, to development institutions and international PVOs. They all share an interest in microfinance, as providers of financial services, capital or technical assistance.
MFC aims to play a facilitator role in bridging the market gap between unmet demand for microfinance services and the sectors current offering through supporting development of a wide range of financial institutions, promoting microfinance among policy makers, regulators, formal banking sector and investors. It supports members in different country contexts - from EU member states, through fast-developing Caucasian states to the poorest countries in Central Asia.
