Clients At The Centre

The Mastercard Foundation Symposium on Financial Inclusion promotes the idea that financial service providers in developing countries should focus more on the needs and expectations of people living in poverty.

We believe that poor people can leverage opportunities to improve their livelihoods if they have access to secure, convenient, and affordable financial products and services. That can occur when commercial service providers truly understand the complex financial lives of poor people and design and deliver products that respond to them.

The 2017 Symposium took place November 8/9 in Accra, Ghana. For the 5th consecutive year its over-arching theme was Clients at the Centre as attendees reflected on progress to expand and deepen financial inclusion, explored challenges and opportunities in the sector, and planned for how to get there. A report on SoFI2017, along with session videos and transcripts, will be available here shortly.
