The Boulder Master Class:

New Financial Inclusion Paradigms

The Boulder MFT features a dynamic roundtable and interactive seminar each morning led by Robert Peck Christen, President and Founder of the Boulder Institute, and Natasa Goronja, VP of Programs. Throughout the Boulder Master Class, Mr. Christen and Ms. Goronja, accompanied by leading experts in microfinance and financial inclusion, will present a holistic overview of a financial ecosystem that works for the poor. Master Class guests will discuss and debate several principal themes such as: What is client centricity? How has financial inclusion evolved? What are the challenges that lie ahead? The Boulder Master Class is a mandatory activity for all English and French Boulder MFT participants, and is held each morning of the 3-week training program.
