The Center for Financial Inclusion Invites Submissions for Financial Inclusion Week 2021

The Center for Financial Inclusion (CFI) invites submissions for Financial Inclusion Week 2021, taking place 1-4 November 2021. Now in its seventh year, Financial Inclusion Week (FIW) is an annual gathering of the global community working to advance inclusive finance.

FIW 2021 will be convened under the theme, "Inclusive Finance: Driving Prosperity in an Era of Uncertainty." As a global community, we have witnessed the power of financial inclusion in helping people cope with the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Government-to-person payments were distributed at a level never before seen, using innovative approaches to identify recipients and disburse payments. With support from their investors, financial service providers worked closely with clients to restructure outstanding debt and provide information services on the health crisis. And fintech providers rapidly innovated to serve clients in the complex and evolving context of the pandemic.
