Craig Churchill


Craig has over 20 years’ microfinance experience, in both developed and developing countries. In his current position in the ILO’s Social Finance Programme, he focuses primarily on the role of financial services that the poor can use to manage risks and reduce their vulnerability, including savings, insurance and emergency loans. He serves as the Chair of the Microinsurance Network (formerly the CGAP Working Group on Microinsurance) and teaches at the Boulder Microfinance Training Programme in Turin. In 2008, he launched the Microinsurance Innovation Facility – a partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, designed to stimulate the development of insurance to help promote decent work for tens of millions of low-income people in the developing world.

Craig has authored and edited over 40 articles, papers, monographs and training manuals on various microfinance topics.
