From mobile money to microfinance, savings groups to Bitcoin, The Guardian says these tweeters on financial inclusion cover it all. Among them: UCI’s Institute for Money, Technology and Financial Inclusion. Established in 2008, the institute has received more than $6 million from The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to support research on money and technology practices among the world's poorest people. To date, IMTFI has supported 123 projects in 41 countries. This includes 160 researchers, more than 70% of whom are from the developing world.
