IMTFI Annual Conference 2012
Wednesday, December 5, 2012 at 8:00 AM - Thursday, December 6, 2012 at 5:00 PM (PST)
This conference brings together the institute’s fourth-year award recipients who will present their preliminary findings. As more and more philanthropic, industry and development actors ask whether mobile technology can help provide access to needed financial services like savings and money transfer, these projects look to the experience on the ground of existing, traditional money systems and financial practices, as well as the potential and real impact of new technology in providing access to finance for the world’s poor.
You may register to attend conference or participate online.
