Join CGAP, IPA, J-PAL, and The World Bank on February 27 for a day-long event that will present the latest evidence on the impact of microcredit, discuss implications of the results for policy and practice, and identify directions for future innovation and research.
The event will begin with a discussion of findings from six randomized evaluations, conducted in six different countries, followed by panel discussions with investors, donors, and service providers addressing the implications of these results for the industry. Panelists will also explore promising innovations in product design and delivery channels that could expand the reach of financial services for the poor and improve their impact.
