Itad at SEEP 2019

Join us at this years’ SEEP Conference where we’ll be reflecting on some of our work with the Mastercard Foundation Savings Learning Lab.

Itad’s James Robinson will be joined by our Savings Learning Lab partners from the Scale2Save and Savings at the Frontier programmes –  Access Bank Ghana Plc (Matilda Asante-Asiedu), First City Monument Bank Limited (Babajide Fatnikun), Advans Cote d’Ivoire (Elise Perrin)  and LAPO Microfinance Bank (Faith Osazuwa-Ojo). The panel will explore their experiences of product delivery and development that prioritise customer resilience to shocks including insecurity, climate and seasonality. The session will share practical product design strategies, engagement channel solutions, and the innovative partnerships these financial service providers have used to address these shocks. It will also discuss early findings on product use and impact on community resilience.

The session is among the Peer Learning Sessions on Day One (22nd October, 10.45am) – find out more here. The full agenda for the conference can be found here.

We’ll also be at the pre-conference Member Day on 21st October.

  • Helen Bailey will lead a table talk on ‘Savings for Youth: What Does the Evidence Tell Us?’ where she will share insights from our recent review of evidence on youth savings initiatives – how we categorised the evidence and what we found by different outcome level results. During this discussion, the table will aim to identify remaining challenges and reflect on learning priorities going forward. Find out more about Member Day.
  • James will also be at the Member Market Place with our lab partner CRS to discuss our ex-post evaluation of their Expanding Financial Inclusion in Africa programme. Find out more here.
