Our purpose


Our purpose is to empower people to solve problems that matter – to create ideas and solutions that have lasting impact

As recognised thought leaders and opinion-shapers on economic and digital inclusion, we generate and share deep insights that contribute to our vision of a world where all people can live their financial and digital lives optimally, thereby unlocking growth, development and welfare in their lives and in economies. We empower key stakeholders to apply insights and catalyse system-level change for long-term development impact. We do this through multi-year programmes, bespoke consulting projects, capacity-building, as well as innovation and ecosystem engagements to support business models, regulators and the public sector.

Cenfri is an independent, not-for-profit think-tank, based in South Africa. Since 2008, our work has reached 35 countries across Africa, Latin America and Asia, but we are proudly committed to our Africa roots.
