29th October – 2nd November

The fourth annual Financial Inclusion Week will take place from October 29 – November 2, 2018. Over the past three years over 80 partner organizations have engaged thousands of people worldwide to discuss the most pressing actions needed to advance financial inclusion globally. In 2018, CFI-Accion aims to continue the conversations from last year and engage an even wider community of stakeholders to discuss this year’s theme Getting Inclusion Right.

In 2018, the Center for Financial Inclusion at Accion is celebrating its 10th anniversary and using this as an opportunity to celebrate progress, but mostly to look to the future. CFI invites the Financial Inclusion Week 2018 community to join them in this journey and reflect on the question, “What do we need to get right?” What do we need to get right to ensure that gains in access lead to true improvements in the lives of the underserved? What are the great upcoming risks that we need to address now to protect customers?

The 2017 Global Findex revealed that an additional 515 million people have opened an account since 2014, however key metrics for usage and savings have declined. During Financial Inclusion Week 2018, partner organizations around the globe will hold conversation focused on how to bridge this gap and get inclusion right.
