We embark on rigorous research incursions to generate relevant insights on ecosystem trends, bottlenecks and other relevant dynamics impacting financial inclusion in Nigeria
We equip ecosystem stakeholders with practical skills,
knowledge and cutting edge toolkits they need to deliver
financial services sustainably, particularly to the financially excluded and underserved.
We monitor the financial service policy landscape
evaluating the impact of regulation on financial
inclusion progress. We also advocate for policy reform and make actionable recommendations based on research and ecosystem consultation.
