Webinar: Rural Youth Financial Inclusion - A Bridge too Far?


Webinar: Rural Youth Financial Inclusion - A Bridge too Far?

Making Cents and RTI International are pleased to announce an in-person and webinar event on January 11, 2017 that will bring together financial inclusion and youth experts to discuss the key issues related to scaling rural and youth-inclusive financial services.  The panel will highlight digital and practical innovations that have the potential to financially include rural populations and especially youth, but also the challenges of applying them to this hard-to-reach group. Panelists will draw from discussions at the recent USAID-sponsored Financial Inclusion Forum, results from a 6-part rural youth learning series developed by Making Cents and IFAD, promising practices from USAID's K-YES project in Kenya, and other initiatives focusing on rural youth financial service provision.  Join us for a discussion about how these trends are bringing rural youth financial inclusion into sight, but perhaps still an innovation away
