Imagine a life without access to financial services: no deposit account, no pension, no debit card, no fire insurance, no college savings plan and no home mortgage. In the developed world, this is unimaginable. Yet the majority of the world’s poor do not have many options– they must rely on friends and family to help them in hard times, or turn to the proverbial mattress to save for a rainy day.

Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC) – in partnership with Carleton University’s School of Public Policy and Administration and The MasterCard Foundation – is delighted to invite you to the next event in the AKFC Seminars on Innovative Financing for Development. This workshop will launch The New Microfinance Handbook, which addresses the need for increased financial inclusion by examining the financial market system and promoting a thorough understanding of client needs.

Speakers include: Bob Christen, President, Boulder Institute of Microfinance; Ann Miles, Director, Microfinance at The MasterCard Foundation; Steve Rasmussen, Manager, Technology and Business Model Innovation at the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor; Joanna Ledgerwood, Director, Enterprise Development at Aga Khan Foundation and other key contributors to The New Microfinance Handbook.

We hope you will join us:
