In Colombia, financial inclusion has been promoted by government agencies, NGOs, banks and other financial institutions, yet is still subject to debate on account of its sustainability on two fronts. On the one hand, the sustainability of the infrastructure required by financial organizations to reach out in geographic and demographic terms. On the other hand, the sustainability in terms of the finances of those included given situations such as overindebtedness. This event brings together academics, government functionaries and practitioners to discuss the benefits but also the tensions, complementarities and contradictions surrounding financial inclusion and debt.

This is a 2-day workshop. See day 2 listing here.
