Regional Workshops and Awareness Days in Lyon

Thus, the Journées de la Microfinance Sociale Social Microfinance Days) were created in Lyon, gathering French and European operators from microfinance, financiers and public authorities. Following the success of this event, Entrepreneurs du Monde organised in 2017 the Journées Internationales de l’Entreprise Sociale (Social Business International Days).
