An impact snapshot 

In 2016, Cenfri and FSD Africa launched a five-year partnership to address barriers and identify opportunities for financial sectors across sub-Saharan Africa to better serve individuals and small businesses, as well as facilitate more inclusive growth. The Risk, Remittances and Integrity (RRI) programme aimed to strengthen the integrity and risk management role of the financial sector and to facilitate remittance flows within and into the continent.
