The African Development Bank (AfDB) and the Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI) have signed an agreement signed to enhance access to quality financial services on the continent. The agreement aims to create a collaboration framework to promote financial inclusion in Africa.
This partnership is aligned with the Bank’s High 5 priorities and the Financial Sector Development Policy and Strategy. The Bank envisions a financial sector that is vibrant, innovative, robust and competitive both nationally and regionally. Modern financial systems will steadily expand their coverage, attaining almost universal access (at least 90 percent of the continent’s population) by 2025, providing essential financial services and products (deposit, payments, credit, and insurance), and improve quality and usage by offering a full range of financial products and services for the continent’s productive sector.
