A conference brought together over 350 participants – representing microfinance practitioners, technology solutions firms, telecommunications companies, regulators, donors and investors and development professionals – from more than 60 countries to hear the latest on innovations in payment systems, mobile banking and credit scoring technologies and the potential of these technologies to contribute to increased access to finance for low-income consumers and businesses. 'Next Generation Access to Finance: Gaining Scale and Reducing Costs with Technology and Credit Scoring', took place in Washington D.C., 17–19 September 2007, and was jointly sponsored by the International Finance Corporation (of the World Bank Group), CGAP (a global consortium of microfinance donors and resource centre) and VISA International (a payments service provider).
