Savings at the Frontier (SatF) is a partnership between Mastercard Foundation and Oxford Policy Management Ltd that seeks to provide informal savings mechanisms (ISMs) users with a greater choice and use of financial services that best meet their needs. SatF is supporting financial service providers (FSPs) in three countries – Ghana, Tanzania and Zambia – and aims to scale up financial services for at least 250,000 adults in peri-urban and rural areas.
SatF has been operating for just over three years and has recently published a helpful interactive timeline that illustrates what the program and its partners have achieved so far. As well as finding out more about the different linkage products being developed, readers can view blogs on issues such as organizational adaptation and the role of technology, explore research findings, and access videos and webinars on topics such as customer centricity and service design. Simply click on the arrow icons to find out more.
The timeline will be periodically updated as the program continues to develop. For further information, please visit the project website or follow SatF and join in the conversation @SavingsFrontier.
