The purpose of this report is to provide a summary of the issues raised at the APEC Workshop on Microfinance Best Practices held in Hanoi, Viet Nam, April 7-8, 2011. This workshop was part of a strategic SMEWG/GFPN project showcasing microfinance best practices, with a focus on women entrepreneurs. The workshop examined ways to improve access to finance in both transitional APEC economies and APEC economies with marketbased microfinance sectors.
 
The PPWE was established at the second Senior Officials’ Meeting (SOM2) in May 2011 held at Big Sky, Montana, the United States. It combined the former APEC Gender Focal Point Network (GFPN) and the private sector-oriented Women’s Leadership Network (WLN) - creating a single public-private entity to streamline and elevate the influence of women’s issues within APEC.
