Savings: The Forgotten Half of Financial Interventions
Collection of posts from an online speakers corner hosted by MicroSave that seeks to shed light on three main broad subjects. The first set of discussions revolves around the needs of the poor—what do low income clients want from a savings product? The second set of discussions look at questions arising for the supplier of microfinance services: What factors inhibit service providers from offering financial services? How will new delivery systems such as e-banking, or the growing acceptance of fee-based systems, affect this? Finally, the third set of discussions continues with a special focus on delivering savings services in difficult (for example remote or post conflict) areas.
