Princess Máxima of the Netherlands will deliver a speech at a meeting on microcredit hosted by Radio Netherlands Worldwide on 25 January 2010.
The event, which takes place in the International Court of Justice building in The Hague, is part of a multimedia project aiming to present the possibilities of microcredits to a worldwide audience.
Development Aid Minister Bert Koenders will also speak at the conference, where 150 invitees from all over the world will be focusing on the question who is benefiting from microfinancing.
On 5 January Radio Netherlands Worldwide will launch a web dossier in four languages about microfinancing on its website, www.rnw.nl.
Microcredits, small loans under favourable conditions, enable individual people in poor countries to set up their own companies and earn a living.
