Background Information: 

The Social Impact Lab is a cross-functional project embedded in a Development Cooperation Program in which IE University has been collaborating with Financieros sin Fronteras since 2012.

Financieros sin Fronteras is an NGO from IE Business School that promotes financial inclusion as a tool for development and has developed different projects aimed at strenghtening the Microfinance sector in Ghana.

Overall, the Social Impact Lab intends to benefit from the synergies between IE Labs and the work carried out in Ghana by Financieros sin Fronteras, in order to put the knowledge of students and professional experience of professors of IE University at the service of the country’s development.

The goal of the program is two-fold: to provide students with hands-on and innovative learning opportunities that give them the chance to apply what they learned at IE Business School and participate in a project aimed at improving the welfare of low income communities in Ghana.
