When: Wednesday October 17th. 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm.

Where: Grameen Foundation. 1101 15th Street NW, 3rd Floor. Washington, D.C.

Mobile phones have emerged as a great banking tool in many developing countries, especially in remote areas.  There are now five billion mobile phones being used across the developing world, but there is still a lot of work to be done to enable households to manage their money through their phones.  October 17th is the United Nations’ International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, and the Grameen Foundation is honoring the holiday through a panel discussion.  The discussion will focus on how to connect millions of unbanked people around the world.  The registration deadline is October 12th.  If you are interested but unable to attend in person, there will also be an online webinar.
