Microfinancing and it's Impact on Extreme Poverty

Meeting Date: 1 June 2012

Meeting Type: Non-real-time Audio Program

Microfinance has grown into a $60 billion+ global industry--with over 10,000 institutions serving nearly 200 million poor people with basic financial services in nearly every country in the world.

But all poverty is not the same.

While many "poor" people have been helped, serving the poorest or Bottom Billion--those 1.4 billion people living in extreme poverty on less than $1.25/day has been the most challenging. Some would argue that this is the client segment most important to serve because they have the greatest need.

Learn more from an interview with Tom Coleman on Bottom Billion Microfinance and his new Bottom Billion Fund that invests in microfinance that serves Bottom Billion people.
