The Citi Foundation is working in partnership with Responsible Finance to celebrate the achievements of the UK’s responsible finance sector and the businesses and social enterprises it supports through the Citi Microentrepreneurship Awards.

The 2019/20 winners will be announced on 12 May at the Awards Dinner during the conference, with significant cash prizes available to you as a Responsible Finance provider and to your clients.

The Awards open for entries on 4 November 2019 and close on Friday 6 December. Once again, there will be four categories to enter on behalf of clients:

- The Microentrepreneur Award for Growth
- The Microentrepreneur Award for Environmental Sustainability
- The Microentrepreneur Award for Social Entrepreneur of the Year
- The Young Microentrepreneur Award

There are also two awards for responsible finance providers, celebrating your Impact and Resilience.

Two further awards will be made to individuals working in responsible finance: Outstanding Loan Officer and a brand new Rising Star Award.
