Microfinance Opportunities

Guy has been the Executive Director of Microfinance Opportunities since 2012, and affiliated with the organization since 2007. During this time he has led numerous research projects on the economic behavior of low-income individuals, households, and communities, as well as financial education projects. He has advised or led 17 Financial Diaries projects in 13 countries, collecting detailed information on how people manage their cash flows—their income, expenses, and use of financial tools. Currently he is leading the Garment Worker Diaries in Bangladesh, collecting weekly data from 1,300 workers.

Guy was also recently co-principal investigator of the Embedded Education Project at Harvard, which focused on how to deliver education, including financial education, to marginalized populations through organizations and networks that do not have education as their primary purpose.

Before becoming Executive Director of MFO, Guy was a Lecturer in Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School where he taught courses in management and microfinance for 13 years. He received his PhD from the University of Chicago in 1994.
