Savings Groups in Colombia have reached more than 120,000 people in large part thanks to the vision and support of the Colombian government. In fact, in 2008 the government began a process of funding Savings Groups pilots through the Banca de las Oportunidades in an effort to increase coverage of unbanked populations. This webinar explores the experience of IED-VITAL in leading the formation of groups in Colombia in partnership with the government. Guiovanny Mendoza and Carlos Caceres of IED VITAL discussed the origins of the partnership and lessons learned on how to engage the government, all while sharing the challenges and opportunities of this approach.
