Summary

This year MM4P learning event #DFS4Women gathered over 1020 stakeholders from 9 countries to demonstrate that providing women in Africa and Asia with better, more affordable and more useful digital financial products and services makes good business sense and is an essential step towards inclusive growth.

Mobile Money for the Poor (MM4P) is a programme launched by UNCDF in partnership with the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida), the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and The MasterCard Foundation. MM4P provides support to digital financial services (DFS) in a selected group of least development countries (LDCs) to demonstrate how the correct mix of financial, technical and policy support can build a robust DFS ecosystem that reaches low income people in LDCs.
