Pondering Progress: Three Market Developments Helping to Accelerate Women’s Financial Inclusion
Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI) celebrated its 10-year anniversary and achievements towards advancing financial inclusion at its annual Global Policy Forum. It’s been three years since the United Nations Capital Development Fund’s (UNCDF) Shaping Inclusive Finance Transformations (SHIFT) program began its partnership with AFI. This partnership allowed for the scale-up of peer learning on gender and women’s financial inclusion policies.
In scope of this partnership, the Denarau Action Plan (DAP): The AFI Network Commitment to Gender and Women’s Financial Inclusion was conceived. This plan helped establish women’s financial inclusion as a priority on the international policy agenda.
