About Us

University Meets Microfinance (UMM) is a European initiative which fosters cooperation between universities, students in Europe and microfinance practitioners to contribute to microfinance innovation and education for development. UMM is mainly active in the domains of microfinance education, microfinance research, information capitalization, professional exchange and dissemination of information. All UMM activities are carried out under the umbrella of the European Microfinance Plat­form (e-MFP) in the frame of the e-MFP "UMM" Action Group.
UMM was launched in 2009 by PlaNet Finance and Freie Universität Berlin with the support of the European Union, the PlaNet Finance Foundation and other partners. Since 2012, UMM has been co-financed by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and receives further support from the European Union, the Agence Française de Développement (AFD), the European Investment Bank Institute, the Freie Universität Berlin and the Frankfurt School of Finance and Management for the period of 2013-2015.
