On November 20th the Associazione delle Donne del Credito Cooperativo (Association of Women in Cooperative Credit) will award the Traguardidee Prize to Maria Nowak, a world renown economist and Microfinance expert and the president of Adie – Association pour le droit à l’initiative économique.

Every year the Association awards the prize to someone outside of the Cooperative Credit sector for enhancing the role of women. In previous years the prize has been awarded to Lella Golfo, Minister Emma Bonino, Anna Maria Tarantola (vice director of the Bank of Italy at the time), and Emma Marcegaglia, president of Confindustria.

The awarding of the prize this year will take place during the annual assembly of Federcasse.
