From noon to 1:30pm on Tuesday, March 1st, Dean Karlan conducted a webinar on barriers to financial inclusion. The event is one of a series of research seminars organized by the Center for Latin American Monetary Studies (CEMLA), an association of central banks and regulatory bodies in Latin America and the Caribbean. Dean discussed the five key barriers that inhibit full financial inclusion of the poor, shared recent evidence on innovations designed to help overcome these barriers, and recommended next steps for practitioners and policymakers who share IPA's goal of promoting better financial decision-making by low-income consumers.
