Join us for an E-Workshop titled “How to Build Savings Groups and Other Breakthroughs in Financial Inclusion“
The Carsey School of Public Policy and Fundación Capital are co-hosting with the Microcredit Summit Campaign the next E-Workshop which will share insights on starting and scaling up savings groups. Both Carsey and Fundación Capital announced Campaign Commitments in 2014, and this latest E-Workshop will help microfinance and financial inclusion stakeholders to improve outreach and service with savings groups.
Join us for a discussion with Jong-Hyon Shin (Fundación Capital) and Jeffrey Ashe, which is moderated by William Maddocks (Carsey School of Public Policy). We will be discussing effective ways of forming savings groups and describe 2-hour trainings that Jong-Hyon led in the Dominican Republic.
The speakers will also share insights on linking savings groups and conditional cash transfer programs (see the recording of the Workshop titled Going to Scale: Savings Groups, Conditional Cash Transfers, and Financial Inclusion at the 17th Microcredit Summit), with the example of collaboration with ADOPEM and Fundación Capital in the Dominican Republic.
Through these valuable insights, you will gain a better understanding of the essential steps to start and scale up savings groups, and see how savings groups can contribute to financial inclusion and the end of extreme poverty.
