CGAP Releases Guidelines for Funders

2 December, 2015

The guidelines, recently released by the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP), advise funders to adopt a new approach. Rather than continuing to focus on building financial service providers – which is an important element for expanding financial access – funders of financial inclusion need to take into account the broader market and address systemic constraints that hinder poor people from accessing and using financial services. A market systems approach seeks to develop financial market systems that are inclusive, resilient and not reliant on external aid.
