TED Talks feature some of the best and brightest speakers from the worlds of business, academia and beyond. We offer this second instalment of three hand-picked unique insights into the financial industry.

Mobile finance entrepreneur Shivani Siroya is helping more people build their financial record into the ability to fund a new business or buy a home.

As CEO and Founder of Tala, Shivani looks to tackle the conundrum of the credit score - a useful tool for banks and lenders but a major hindrance to those without one. Mobile financial tracking tools have the potential to change that.
