Last week we launched the new umbrella organization “Danish Forum for Microfinance”, or DFM. It was a pleasure to see around 150 people coming to attend the launch and there was great enthusiasm on the topic. Notably, some large commercial actors were present, too. Axel de Ville made a very engaging talk and gave us some great advice and good ideas for our future work as an organization and how to ensure that we are relevant to the members. Axel’s experience is very relevant to us as he is chairman of the European Microfinance Platform and director of ADA – a Luxembourgish NGO doing microfinance. As chairman of the board I also got the chance to speak. Here’s my presentation and more info on the event at DFM’s website.
