Innovating in digital finance

Access to affordable, accessible and appropriate financial products and services that meet the needs of underserved populations is a critical step toward broader economic and social inclusion and improved financial health. Digital financial services can allow people to store money, send and receive payments, leverage credit and insure their assets in order to improve the overall quality of their lives.

We work with partners and fintech innovators to develop and scale digital solutions that can improve the financial health and resilience of the underserved, enabling them to engage in better day-to-day financial management, save for the future, hedge against shocks and actively engage with digital financial services.
