SCOTT GAUL - is the Director of Analysis at MIX, the MicroFinance Information Exchange – a microfinance performance data and analysis organization. Scott introduced the audience to the hidden world of microfinance data, which provides valuable information about the economic decision making of the poor and marginalized. This large data set is normally difficult to obtain and digest – but Scott walked the participants through the process of accessing this data and the value that it may provide their programmatic work. Not only are microfinance details a barometer of a region’s economic health – but can also be an early warning indicator of social unrest, and a population’s changing priorities.
