2019 Trends in International Funding for Financial Inclusion

Since 2012, CGAP has conducted the Funder Survey in partnership with MIX, documenting trends in international funding for financial inclusion.

In 1019, international funders committed approximately $52 billion to financial inclusion, a 12 percent increase from the $46 billion reported in 2018. This marks the highest volume captured across the history of the CGAP Cross-Border Funder Survey and the third consecutive year of double-digit percentage growth. Public funders accounted for 73 percent of active financial inclusion funding commitments in 2019, comparable to their global share in recent years. Development finance institutions remained the largest public funders of financial inclusion in 2019, reporting a collective $25 billion in commitments, which was a 13 percent annualized growth.
