If you want to bring the next 3 billion people on the net and into the financial system start with women entrepreneurs.  More than 85% of all microfinance loans go to women – these women are often the primary breadwinners in their households.

Today we came together with Mastercard, TATA, Softbank Brightstar, Kiva, Trickle Up and others to empower these women with smartphones – these phones will include digital money software as well as apps to sell their wares on Etsy and other marketplaces.    This is a gamechanger.
