Featured Organization: Accion

In Their Words:

We are building the next generation of top-tier microfinance institutions (MFIs):
  • Using our 50 years of experience to help smaller MFIs achieve greater scale, sustainability and efficiency;
  • Helping MFIs expand their products and services to address their clients’ full range of needs; and
  • Focusing on un- and under-served regions, such as India, China, Brazil and sub-Saharan Africa.

We are pushing the frontiers of financial inclusion beyond MFIs:
  • Accelerating the development of new business models, technologies and channels; and
  • Providing seed funding and assistance for promising start-ups and adjacent technologies through impact investment initiatives.

We are helping to build a strong financial inclusion industry with high standards and broad engagement:
  • Redoubling industry commitment to consumer protection through the Smart Campaign;
  • Providing platforms for industry collaboration, through the Microfinance CEO Working Group, the Red Accion, and the Financial Inclusion Equity Council; and
  • Promoting consumer protection, transparency, and social-performance measurement by working on initiatives such as the Social Performance Task Force, Microfinance Transparency, and others.

WHY THEY MATTER: Accion helps microfinance internationally, while still focusing on important elements of change such as governance and client education.
