About us

The Financial Innovation Lab is a community of practice energized by its mission to achieve digital financial inclusion for the elimination of poverty worldwide. An initiative of the UN Capital Development Fund (UNCDF), the Lab aims to increase the accessibility of digital financial services and products for low- and middle-income people in Africa, Asia, and the Pacific by sharing knowledge and providing resources to develop impactful solutions.

We support the efforts of companies and individuals around the world who strive for financial inclusion, contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals. We provide direct support to such companies and individuals through our innovation challenges. Read more about the innovation challenges here.
