Yves Moury’s position as CEO of EdgeFinance and founder and CEO of Fundación Capital demonstrates his multidimensional dedication to poverty alleviation. EdgeFinance functions as a consulting agency dedicated to re-engineering MFIs while Fundación Capital seeks to promote large-scale asset-building for the poor and public policies for poverty reduction in Latin America. Moury will speak about conditional cash transfers (CCTs) in the plenary session titled “Going the Extra Mile: From Safety Nets to Pathways out of Poverty.”

In partnership with the governments of Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Paraguay and Peru, Proyecto Capital, a project of Fundación Capital, is implementing programs that promote financial inclusion by linking CCTs and their recipients to savings accounts in financial institutions, and are estimated to have impacted more than 70,000 families as of 2011.

Fundación Capital is working to create conditions that allow people to build, improve and enhance assets:

  • Human assets:  access to health and education services
  • Physical assets:  access to and ownership of housing, land, production tools
  • Social assets:  enhancement of social capital
  • Financial assets:  access to the formal financial system

Moury has more than 25 years of experience in international development and poverty reduction with the Inter-American Development Bank, European Union, and International Labor Organization, as well as with numerous public and private entities, financial corporations and universities in Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America.
