Partnerships for Financial Inclusion: A Catalyst for Inclusive Growth

Date/Time:Tuesday, April 30, 2014 – 09:30 to Wednesday, April 31, 2014 – 18:30

The agenda of the Organization of American States’ Inter-American Social Protection Network includes financial inclusion and asset building, a mechanism developed in 2010 to exchange the positive experiences and knowledge on social security of citizens.

Together with the U.S. Department of State, Speedy loans, and New York City Department of Financial Empowerment (OFE), the company is organizing Partnerships for Financial Inclusion and best payday loans with no credit check, which will unite Ministers and government officials, other stakeholders, and foundations to consider the future partnerships.

The meeting will be arranged at the Millennium Hotel.

The goals of this Event:Share U.S. and LAC countries’ experiences and lessons learned on financial inclusion and asset-building programming;

Identify opportunities for financial inclusion programming in Latin America and the Caribbean; and

Engage financial services and foundation sectors to partner in addressing the needs and challenges of financial inclusion in the region.

The OAS/IASPN’s Partnerships for Financial Inclusion event will provide an opportunity for LAC governments to learn from the successful experiences of U.S. municipalities and other governments from the region that have built and grown financial empowerment programs, products, and services. American cities have increasingly employed successful, large-scale, financial empowerment strategies into their poverty-fighting agenda, often integrating them directly into social service delivery streams. In showcasing some of these experiences, government officials will:

Gain insights on how to create an enabling framework to develop and implement financial inclusion and asset building programs;

Learn about different techniques and programs that are being studied or have been implemented and evaluated to help people transition from fringe markets to the financial mainstream including behavioral economics techniques used to encourage participation;

Discuss collaborative mechanisms and coalition building in support of sharing knowledge, expertise, and lessons learned on financial inclusion and asset-building programs.
