About us

The Swiss Microfinance Platform is an independent, not for profit organization in the public interest.

This organization’s objective is to bring together Swiss microfinance practitioners. The organization gives members the opportunity to present and share their activities, to exchange information and experiences, to meet other practitioners and to work together on points of common interest in microfinance.

The goal of this association of Swiss microfinance professionals is to bring together different capabilities and resources in analysis, finance and policies to promote understanding of microfinance and to capitalize on Switzerland’s financial experience for the benefit of developing countries.

The association is a platform open to all professionals engaged in microfinance.  Members may be analysts, practitioners, policy makers or investors (managers or commercial) regardless of their vision of microfinance.  Any person or institution based in Switzerland and who adheres to the association’s statutes and pays an annual membership fee may become a member.
