Now reading: Never waste a crisis – how sub-Saharan African insurers are being affected by, and are responding to, COVID-19

Risk, Remittances and Integrity programme (RRI)

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.
