InFocus

Jul 5, 2017

The InFocus project examined the experiences of four developing country banks that have specific savings account offerings targeted toward low-income populations. In this knowledge-building exercise which was sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), BFA conducted extensive analytical studies of the banks and their customers over a two-year period. The studies aimed to give the Financial Services for the Poor team at BMGF a comprehensive understanding of the economics around providing savings services for the poor.
