The 17th Microcredit Summit will be organized around the theme “Generation Next: Innovations in Microfinance,” engaging delegates in a thoughtful discussion around the challenges and opportunities associated with the growth and transformation of the sector, especially through innovative and best practices that accelerate the steps to reach full financial inclusion. CFI’s Joshua Goldstein will deliver a keynote speech on disability inclusion. The Financial Inclusion 2020 campaign will lead two workshops at the Summit. The first workshop, Financial Services & Aging: Understanding and Serving the Needs of the Older Generation, wil be held on Wednesday, September 3. The second, Advancing the Roadmap to Financial Inclusion, will be held on Friday, September 5. The second session, drawing on a joint blog series between CFI and the Microcredit Summit Campaign, will explore the challenges and opportunities in advancing the Roadmap to Financial Inclusion, particularly in meeting the unique needs of vulnerable and hard to reach populations.
