Innovation in Latin America:
New Technologies for Financial Inclusion
Wednesday, November 30, 2011
Registration: 5:15 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Presentation: 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Where: Americas Society
680 Park Avenue
New York, NY

Americas Society and Council of the Americas present a panel discussion on the role of technology in the development of Latin American financial inclusion models. According to the Microfinance Information Exchange, Latin America had more microfinance institutions than any other region in the world in 2009.

In 2010, the gross loan portfolio in Latin America averaged $22.9 billion with 14.3 million active borrowers, and continues to grow at an exponential rate. Yet, as 60 percent of the population in Latin America and the Caribbean remain without formal access to banks, technology and innovation are critical to broadening the impact and efficiency of financial service providers while sustaining the growth of existing portfolios.

This panel will bring together leading executives from the private sector, as well as prominent Latin American technology and financial service experts to analyze the various models that are catapulting microfinance into the technological era.

Confirmed Speakers:
Serge Elkiner, CEO and Co-Founder, YellowPepper
Alberto Jimenez, Director, Global Mobile Solutions, Citigroup, Inc.
Camilla Nestor, Vice President, Microfinance, Grameen Foundation
Moderator: Fermín Vivanco, Senior Specialist, Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF), Inter-American Development Bank

Prior registration is required.

Registration Fee: $25.00 for AS* and COA members; $40.00 for non-members.
