Financial Education Campaigns

The supportive ‘FINANCIAL EDUCATION WINDOW’ (FEW) co-funds financial education campaigns that are pre-conditions for (1) introducing insurance and other new financial services, and (2) establishing greenfield financial institutions in environments in which the existing financial institutions are unable or not willing to engage in inclusive financial services. The FEW is supporting on-going Product Up-scaling Support. It is earmarked for members and SDC partners only.
