Arthur Bauer

MPA-ID 2015
Centre For Microfinance, India

Arthur interned with the Centre for Microfinance, part of the Institute for Financial Management and Research in India, working on an innovative and multifaceted Harvard-led research project that explores the impact of rural financial services on women's health and economic empowerment.
