Larry Reed, director of the Microcredit Summit Campaign, and panelists from USAID, CGAP, and the Center for Global Development will discuss the latest figures presented in the Report on outreach to poor and poorest clients around the world, which we will reveal are lower this year than in 2011. They will address why the numbers are lower, what clients need, and how organizations are meeting those needs (or not).

The State of the Microcredit Summit Campaign Report highlights the latest data on the progress towards reaching more than 175 million of the poorest families with microfinance and ensuring that 100 million of those families rise out of poverty. This report is the largest and most comprehensive annual survey on the outreach of microfinance to the poor and very poor.
