Financial Inclusion 2020: Roadmap to Financial Inclusion

Commitment by

Accion International

In 2013, The Center for Financial Inclusion at Accion International committed to launching Financial Inclusion 2020, a global, multi-sector effort that seeks to answer the question: what does the world have to do to achieve full financial inclusion by the year 2020? To begin to address that question, Accion is leading a consultative process with a wide range of players including donors, banks, foundations, telecommunications companies, regulators, and others, to develop a Roadmap to overcoming obstacles to financial inclusion. The Roadmap addresses five crucial areas for financial inclusion: Customer Needs, Technology, Client Protection, Credit Reporting, and Financial Capability. Accion and its partners will then disseminate action plans for financial inclusion out of these working groups, and work with interested parties to take up the recommendations to achieve full financial inclusion by 2020.
