In Central America, there is still a dearth of knowledge and experience on how to increase financial access in an environment where the private sector largely accounts for the provision of financial services. Innovation and adoption of new technologies reduces the cost of providing access to financial services, especially those related to transactions and payments.
The Social Performance Task Force (SPTF) partners with Amarante Consulting to provide ‘Training on Digital Financial Services’ to MFIs through:
– Capacity building of MFIs
– Digital readiness assessment of MFIs to define what needs to be done to start going digital
SPTF is engaging in this initiative in Central America and the Caribbean (RIFF-CAC) region in collaboration with REDCAMIF and in Sub-Saharan Africa/Middle East and North Africa (RIFF-SSA/MENA) in collaboration with Smart Campaign
Networks and Microfinance Institutions can request introductory training for their members and can also apply for co-funded Digital Readiness Assessment studies.
