Spur innovation and delivery of microfinance for youth in Africa

Why We Partnered

This partnership helps microfinance institutions (MFIs) design and deliver high quality financial services for the growing youth market. Through a competitive process, it will select between 8 and 10 MFIs to receive technical assistance to innovate, deliver, and document financial services to youth. Additionally, the program will build permanent policy and technical capacity in youth microfinance among policymakers, donors, and financial service providers.
