Workshop discussion, Sofia, Bulgaria,
April 9-11, 1997
Strong regional and country-level networks will enable microfinance practitioners to exchange experience, build common performance standards, and influence government policy to facilitate the growth of microfinance institutions. These measures are essential if microfinance is to fulfill its potential in alleviating poverty and building broad-based economic development.

- WWB UNDP Workshop in Addis Ababa, March 1998.
