I hope you all are continuing to stay safe and well amidst these unprecedented times. Those we are working to serve at the base of the pyramid are the ones most critically impacted by COVID-19 and the measures being taken to mitigate it. These times and the coming months as global economies seek to stabilize themselves will represent a significant opportunity for our community and the toolset we’re building to deliver technology-enabled financial inclusion and widespread access to financial services.
I wanted to use our Mindmeld category in Discourse to share some resources and websites curating content and guiding discussion around how the sector’s being impacted and ways to respond. Here are a few links below and I encourage you to share others as well on this thread:
FinDev COVID-19 Hub: https://www.findevgateway.org/topics/covid-19
From eMFP, SPTF and CFI - www.covid-finclusion.org, housing original essay content and a discussion forum where sector stakeholders can ask questions, initiate discussions and provide details of their own experiences, forecasts and concerns.
