Financial Inclusion Week 2017 wrap up

Organised by the Centre for Financial Inclusion at Accion, the annual Financial Inclusion Week is a worldwide conversation on the most important steps to advance the global financial inclusion agenda. 

As part of the 2017 event, almost 200 attendees joined UNCDF and VisionFund Myanmar last week for an online discussion titled: ‘What’s Next for Microfinance in Myanmar?’

Paul Luchtenburg, Country Coordinator for UNCDF in Myanmar, provided a comprehensive overview of the context, including a succinct description of how Myanmar’s history has influenced the state of the sector today. Rommel Caringal, CEO of VisionFund Myanmar, then drew upon his experience leading the second-largest MFI in country to describe how the institution is serving over 160,000 clients and what he sees as the way forward for the industry.

A recording of the webinar can be streamed via this link. The slides are available for download here.
