 The Latin American Savings Groups Forum will be held on December 4, 5, and 6, in Bogotá, Colombia, taking advantage of the developments put forth by IED-VITAL with regards to the formation of groups, and the leadership of the Banca de las Oportunidades, which has promoted, pushed and financed the implementation of the methodology in Colombia. The Forum counts with financial support from the Ford Foundation and technical support from Catholic Relief Services (CRS). It will be composed of 2.5 days of academic dialogue and activities and a "Learning Path" visit to some of the best savings groups in Bogotá and its surrounding areas.
