Where we work


UNCDF's activities in Cameroon have focused improving the accessibility of financial services to low-income populations in urban and rural areas. Currently, our work is centered on accelerating inclusive policies and regulations that expand the promote inclusive digital economies.

Through UNCDF's Policy Accelerator, we are supporting the expansion of Digital Financial Services (DFS) in Cameroon by tapping into the existing mobile infrastructure. The hope is that DFS can enable more people to access formal financial services. UNCDF's strategy will include diagnostic studies to assess regulatory barriers to digital financial services; consultative approaches with relevant stakeholders, including the Ministry of Finance; and facilitating public-private civil society dialogues.
