The Making Access Possible (MAP) diagnostic approach – a result of the programme’s unique analytical framework – developped throuhg UNCDF (United Nations Capital Development Fund) looks to build a picture of market demand based on household and individual income, economic activity, and current usage of financial services within a diverse array of countries and local contexts. In this way, the MAP programme hopes to achieve the following objectives:

  • Encourage providers of financial services to deliver products and services to those segments of the population that are currently underserved; and
  • Enable policymakers and regulators to understand current policies and regulations that are inhibiting market growth and to develop a strategic vision on financial inclusion and the possible delivery modalities
