Feasibility Studies

The supportive ‘FEASIBILITY STUDY WINDOW’ (FSW) co-funds the preparation of feasibility studies and business plans (as well as related activities) that are preconditions for (1) introducing insurances services, and (2) transforming successful financial inclusion programmes into regulated financial institutions, and (3) establishing greenfield financial institutions in environments in which the existing financial institutions are unable or not willing to engage in inclusive financial services. The FSW helps preparing the groundwork for developing subsequent action-oriented proposals for the PUW and thus excludes any academic research. It is earmarked for members and SDC Partners only.
