In this second season of Fintech for the People, we’ll explore the hottest topic in fintech right now: embedded finance. We’re seeing credit, savings, insurance, and other financial tools increasingly integrated into traditionally non-financial services, products, or technologies. This season we will specifically highlight the ways embedded finance is being used to close the $5 trillion credit gap for micro and small businesses around the world.
Fintech has the power to build a more inclusive world. Fintech for the People showcases the innovators who are developing fintech solutions that reach the people who’ve been left behind. In each episode, we’ll hear from innovative fintech leaders who are creating financial solutions that bring every person the financial tools they need to grow their business, support their family, and build their community. Together, we’ll learn how fintech looks different in spaces and places where basic financial services are a luxury — and how solutions to address these challenges require a different level of creativity, empathy, and execution.
