Hi EMT friend, it’s Ana Paula Picasso here!
It’s been a while since you signed up to be a member of the #EMT community on the Emerging Markets Today website.
You’ve probably received past newsletters, but they weren’t quite what I had in mind. Now, I’m launching a monthly newsletter using Revue - a fantastic tool for bringing you what you might have missed on the EMT site and podcast.
This month’s issue is all about podcasts and emerging markets!
Take a peek at what I’ve put together for you 👇👇

On the EMT podcast
This month’s show focused on how microfinance is helping Brazil’s unbanked and underbanked communities.
I had a chat with Taynah Reis, a fellow Brazilian and the founder of MoedaSeeds, a fintech that provides financing to entrepreneurs in underserved areas. They support female-owned businesses in rural regions and offer investment options based on blockchain and cryptocurrency.
Listen in and let me know what you think about the episode by replying to this email with your comments.

Also, I’ve started a Spotify podcast playlist featuring my favorite emerging markets-related episodes. Every week, I will add new episodes. Also, feel free to recommend an episode to include in the playlist.
The next TikTok from emerging markets?
Still on the subject of podcasts, on July’s episode of EMT podcast, I invited Andy Tian, the CEO of Asia Innovations Group – the company behind UpLive, Lamour and other live social apps.
We talked about what live social is, live shopping and why Andy thinks that the next big social media app is coming from emerging markets.
Here is the article I wrote about the episode 👇
EM community highlight
I came across this excellent article by podcaster and businesswoman Alex Nyamoya Boyi titled Africa Needs Podcasts.
Alex writes:
“Africa is home to 1.7 billion people and if I were to interview one interesting person per week, I was set for life. Six months in, I decided to add an additional episode per week … because why not?”
