Sao Tome & Principe - Payments System Infrastructure and Financial Inclusion Project

The Government of São Tomé and Príncipe (STP) has developed a National Financial Sector Development Implementation Plan (FSDIP), with funding from the World Bank. An important pillar of the FSDIP is the need to upgrade existing financial infrastructure, specifically the payment system in order to promote inclusion and economic development.

The Payment Infrastructure and Financial Inclusion project (PIFIP) is responding to the need to enhance the capability of the financial sector access a modern payments infrastructure.
