Quote: „ECDN membership is a great value for our organisation because we can share our experience and exchange good practices from different European perspectives. Moreover, it gives us access to a large number of direct information and current legal regulations related to excessive debt in Europe. This in turn supports the search and development of effective solutions for financial inclusion and dissemination of financial education to protect European consumers.“
