Save the date. On April 17th at Lunch time, Hannah, an independent consultant having previously worked at the World Bank and managed a microfinance bank in Congo DRC and Kaspar, CEO of the Luxembourg Microfinance and Development Fund will engage in a discussion on the evolution of this “poster-child” social sector.

Half of the adults in the world do not have access to adequate financial services (loans, savings, transfers and insurance). Microfinance started as a charity activtiy by giving people access to small credit to finance their income generating activities. Today several microfinance institutions have balance sheets in excess of USD 1 billion and offer a wide range of competitive products and services to well over 200 million clients.

Hannah and Kaspar will trace the evolution of the sector and host an open discussion about their personal involvement and career choices.
