The MFC is also a broad and diverse community of organisations interested in and practicing sustainable social finance. ​Together with its members – microfinance, financial cooperative systems, social finance banks, social investors, academic institutions, national and international support organizations and networks – it seeks to make financial services work effectively for people, communities and the planet by embracing sustainability good practices and standards, sharing knowledge, advocacy and networking in the region of Europe and Central Asia.

On the 29th and 30th of June 2022, the MFC held its 24th Annual Conference to explore the microfinance investment landscape and opportunities, important sector updates, and the latest approaches to gender, green finance, technological challenges and financial inclusion of refugees and migrants.
