Chicago microfinance conference

This page in:

University of Chicago and Northwestern are teaming teamed up for a solid one day event on April 21st, Microfinance at the Crossroads. An impressive mix of public, private and NGO speakers, including Andre Laude from the IFC. Though I wish they hadn’t divided the breakout sessions into ‘finance’ and ‘impact’ tracks. One of my qualms with microfinance is that people divide it into this pro-poor vs. for-profit dichotomy. What we need is for the two approaches to learn more about (and from) each other. Maybe trick the guests to go to the wrong session? Via MicroCapital.

Also see a previous post asking whether the industry's training wheels should be taken off?

Update: As Owen correctly points out, this event already happened! Somehow I read April as May. I blame my mistake on Friday afternoon.
