Financial Inclusion Week 2019
October 21 - 25, 2019
Financial Inclusion: For What?
This year, we are taking a step back as a community to revisit the fundamental purpose of our work.
As some organizations pursue financial inclusion as their ultimate goal, others are driving toward financial health or the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Meanwhile, financial institutions and fintechs are aiming to profitably serve low-income markets. In the face of these trends, we can’t help but ask: What is financial inclusion for?
Financial Inclusion: For What? is a call to action for our community to reexamine our goals and renew efforts to achieve them. During Financial Inclusion Week this year, October 21-25, 2019, we invite you to convene around this question to reexamine, redefine, and align our goals.
