Breaking Banks focuses on organizations that are exploring fintech as a means to financial inclusion.

The UN Global Goals is an outline of 17 goals that seek to:

  • end poverty
  • fight inequality and injustice
  • fix climate change.

As you wonder about each of them, you realize that all of the goals are interdependent. On the latest Breaking Banks podcast, we’re focusing on organizations that are exploring fintech as a means to financial inclusion.

I talk to Jen Tescher from the CSFI, and Scott McCormack of Social Money, about their efforts in the US and abroad to increase opportunities to save and build security. We also talk to Kosta Peric and David Lubinski of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation about their efforts as part of the Foundation’s FSP team and their work in Pakistan and Nigeria.

Plus, Sam Maule of the Digital Finance Institute, and Alan Grundy of Rescue.org, discuss how we can use fintech to aid in the Syrian refugee crisis.
