As part of their 2014 Campaign Commitment, Carsey School of Public Policy co-hosted a learning event on Thursday, December 11th with us to share the value of starting and scaling up savings groups. William Maddocks (Carsey School of Public Policy) facilitated an engaging discussion, featuring Jong-Hyon Shin (Fundación Capital in the Dominican Republic), and Jeffrey Ashe (The Carsey School of Public Policy).
Summary of the E-Workshop
The E-workshop focused on two main issues:
- A 2-hour training method to create new savings groups
- The link between savings groups and conditional cash transfers.
Jong-Hyon presented her own experience in the Dominican Republic, and Jeff talked about the takeaways from his research in West Africa.
