Now reading: Closing gaps, building bridges


After five years, the insight2impact (i2i) programme hosted by Cenfri and FinMark Trust and supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in partnership with the Mastercard Foundation has come to an end. i2i supported policymakers, financial service providers and development partners to harness the power of data to advance financial-sector development and improve financial inclusion.

We worked with 1 964 organisations across 16 countries to link technology and data with greater inclusion. Visit to find out more about our impact and view the brochure.
