Summary

UNCDF has been in Myanmar since 2012, with the Making Access Possible Financial Inclusion diagnostic and Financial Inclusion Roadmap providing the foundation for in-country interventions. The Roadmap was approved by the Government in 2015 and launched by the United Nations Special Advocate for inclusive finance for development, Queen Máxima of the Netherlands. Through the Roadmap, UNCDF identified the following targets: i) increase formal financial inclusion from 30% to 40%; and ii) increase the percentage of adults with access to more than one financial product from 6% to 15%, by 2020.
