Our next Making It guest talks microfinance, financial inclusion, and the informal economy

Making It’s fourth episode drops Thursday featuring a microfinance pioneer: Back when financial inclusion was just a buzzword, our next guest saw an opening in an underserved segment of the Egyptian business community. His 11-year journey saw him grow to 270 branches nationwide, navigating banks, policy makers, and private equity giants to create a new sector that brings the informal economy into the fold.
