Participants include Carolina Trivelli, former former Minister for Development and Social Inclusion and specialist in public policies and rural development; Marushka Chocobar, secretary for Peru’s Gobierno Digital Secretariat; Luis Germán Linares, general manager for Financiera Confianza, BBVAMF’s institution in Peru.

Stephanie García Van Gool, Director of Impact Assessment and Strategic Development for the Foundation, will present data on BBVAMF’s activity, as well as the outcomes in Peru, where the progress of almost one million entrepreneurs are being supported.

Charly Mendoza, credit officer for Financiera Confianza, will explain the app that the MFI uses to bring branch offices closer to the entrepreneurs’ businesses, cutting travel times and allowing a faster and more efficient service.
