We Storify’d the Twitter chat! Find out what people were talking about and were excited to see at the Summit. Click here.

Join the Microcredit Summit Campaign (@MicroCredSummit) and Devex (@devex) at noon today (ET / GMT-4) on Twitter to get a glimpse at what you’ll learn when you attend the 17th Microcredit Summit, and take part in this exciting conversation surrounding the theme, “Generation Next: Innovations in Microfinance.” Portal de Microfinanzas (@Portal_MF) will provide the Spanish interpretation of the conversation.

Glynis Rankin, Chuck Waterfield, and Josh Goldstein will join us in the conversation on issues such as:

  • How the next generation of systems, institutions and products will require a new generation of leaders.
  • How we can build a financial system that reaches 2.5 billion people that we aren’t already reaching.
  • How new and innovative social protection programs combined with financial services have begun to show great promise in facilitating movement out of poverty.
  • How financial markets driven by profits as their primary objective can create great benefit for the poor, but can also exploit the poor.
