Now reading: Financial sector innovation in Africa

Risk, Remittances and Integrity programme (RRI)


Over five years, we worked with FSD Africa 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. We worked with regulators, new and traditional financial service providers to advance inclusive finance and remove barriers for almost 6 million people while ensuring safe and stable financial markets.
