Information

USAID is reorienting the way it does business to focus on supporting our partner countries on the Journey to Self-Reliance, or their ability to solve their own development challenges. Achieving self-reliance for our partner countries will not be possible without inclusive financial systems that create jobs, build markets, strengthen resilience, and empower women and youth.  

USAID is excited to host the Digital Financial Inclusion for Development (DFI4D) Forum on April 19, 2019 to showcase the latest evidence in inclusive digital financial services on development outcomes, emerging models and best practices.

Inclusive digital financial services are making headway, accelerating development goals and broader economic growth. In Kenya, digital financial services have helped 1.4 million people gain access to healthcare. In Liberia, digital financial services help reduce teacher absenteeism.

These exciting advancements demonstrate the bright potential of digital financial services, but more evidence is needed across health, agriculture, resilience, humanitarian assistance and energy to show the many ways digital financial services accelerate development outcomes.

Join USAID on April 19 to learn how digital financial inclusion paves pathways to self-reliance.
