Rodger Voorhies, Director of the Financial Services for the Poor initiative, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Rodger Voorhies, director of the Financial Services for the Poor initiative at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will talk about the foundation’s work in this area at the 2013 Partnerships against Poverty.

He’ll give an overview of the current strategy, talk about the exciting role that the technology can play in realizing broad-based financial inclusion for the world’s poorest, and how all players — MFIs, the private sector, regulators, policymakers and donors — have an important role in bringing affordable, efficient financial services to the poor.

Larry Reed, director of the Microcredit Summit Campaign, interviewed Voorhies last year for Vulnerability:  The State of the Microcredit Summit Campaign Report, 2013 about the benefits of digital transactions, explaining how they make services affordable in addition to the overall benefits for the poor.
