On Tuesday September 2nd, a group of high-level business leaders, government officials, and microfinance specialists from 65 different nationalities will arrive at Mérida, Yucatán, to attend the 17th Microcredit Summit 2014 “Generation Next: Innovations in Microfinance“, that will take place in this capital city from 3 to 5 September.

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.

In 1997, the first Microcredit Summit launched a nine-year campaign to reach 100 million of the world’s poorest families, especially the women of those families, with credit for self-employment and other financial and business services by the year 2005. In November of 2006 the Campaign was re-launched to 2015 with two new goals:

1) To reach 175 million of the world’s poorest with microfinance and
2) To help 100 million families lift themselves out of extreme poverty.

In addition to our goals, the Campaign has four core themes that focus not only on the number of clients reached but also on the quality of the practitioners’ work:

  • Reaching the Poorest
  • Empowering Women
  • Financial Self-Sustainability
  • A Positive, Measurable Impact
