Microcredit Summit Campaign
The Microcredit Summit Campaign brings together microfinance practitioners, advocates, educational institutions, donor agencies, international financial institutions, non-governmental organizations and others involved with microfinance to promote best practices in the field, to stimulate the interchanging of knowledge and to work towards reaching our goals.
Adoption / Behavior Change, Finance / Investment, Gender / Womens Empowerment, Livelihoods, Microfinance, Policy Development
Other Technologies Fuels
The Campaign does not work in areas directly connected to fuels but we would like to identify potential partnerships with organizations who do and who are also interested in using their work to help mitigate extreme poverty.
Clean Cooking Activities
As an advocate in the microfinance industry we are deeply interested in finding tools and products that will support individuals making the journey out of extreme poverty. Clean cook stoves have the ability to reduce the costs for cooking fuel. In addition the improved health quality will reduce one of the key vulnerabilities affecting those living in extreme poverty.
The Campaign has been a leading convener in the microfinance space since 1997. We would like to find ways to make our various advocacy platforms (ie - Learning Tours, Summits, and Campaign Commitments) play a supporting role in expanding the access to, affordability of, and use of clean cook stoves.
