The Alliance for Financial Inclusion is a network of central banks and financial institutions across developing countries working together to accelerate the accessibility of banking services to the world’s 2.5 billion unbanked people. We co-ordinated a review across 84 jurisdictions on financial inclusion policies and measures, covering financial inclusion data, digital financial services, financial integrity, consumer protection and national strategy. The purpose is to create a central repository of this information to reinforce AFI members’ peer learning, and formulation and implementation of effective financial inclusion policies in their countries.

Wildhearts supports women in developing countries by providing affordable micro-loans. We support Wildhearts by taking part in Micro-Tyco– a global entrepreneurial event that challenges participants to grow £1 of seed funding. In 2015 teams in London, New York, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Germany, Stockholm, Brussels, Shanghai and Beijing realised a gain of over £28,000 to support the offering of several hundred micro-loans to women across Wildhearts' network.
