I’m Veronika Thiel, a freelancer working in the field of financial inclusion and microfinance, offering policy and research analysis, as well as project management and training in social performance management. I previously worked for the new economics foundation, the Children’s Society and the Local Economic Policy Unit in London, and the Small Enterprise Foundation in South Africa.
The contents of this blog are my personal thoughts on issues that relate to social policy and development, both in the UK and further afield. They are my own opinions and do not represent those of clients or organisations I am affiliated with. Due to the nature of my work, post are most likely going to relate to microfinance, financial inclusion and transparency in banking and social performance management, but will hopefully also be about wider issues.
It is likely to be a relatively spontaneous blog, for when twitter isn’t long enough, so you will find typos as I concentrate on making the content & snappy interesting.
