Over the past six years we’ve asked you to use your imagination in capturing the diversity and dynamism of microfinance. As a result, stunning images have been shared all around the world. This year, we’re asking you to focus on a broader set of issues relating to financial inclusion. Help us show the vast varieties of ways in which poor households use formal and informal mechanisms to manage their household finances, to save, to invest, and to manage risk. By sharing your photos, you’ll reach countless others, and help us tell a remarkable story of innovation and ingenuity in the uses of finance to improve lives.
