2013 | Developing Youth Inclusive Products with Financial Service Providers

IMG 1241 2Description: Led 2 separate workshops on how to provide financial services to youth. The workshop used real case studies from leading Moroccan and Egyptian MFIs with field staff perspectives on why they have chosen to develop youth-appropriate financial products and services. Attendants participated in product development activities that are offered to MFI staff and practiced using tools to develop these sustainable products. MEDA's successful strategy was highlighted as an appropriate way of providing financial service access to youth using an integrated training and technical assistance program called "Financial Solutions for Youth".

Key Outputs: Trained 22 implementers on youth product development.
