|Samenvatting||Cordaid has supported some 90 microfinance institutions (MFIs) with a variety of instruments, ranging from grants for capacity building and technical assistance to loans for financing the portfolios of emerging MFIs. Cordaid organised a seminar with 15 of its partner organisations and a congress specifically aimed at social investors in the Netherlands, recognising the challenge of finding new financial sources for investing in the fastgrowing microfinance sector. The seminar was held in Soesterberg (6-8 June 2005) and the congress in The Hague (10 June 2005). This booklet presents the speeches that were delivered during the congress and the major findings of both the seminar and the congress, outlining the needs of MFIs for finance in different phases of their development.|
