What is CFI?

An independent global think tank

The Center for Financial Inclusion (CFI) uses rigorous research and advocacy to advance inclusive financial systems for low-income people around the world.

Today, billions of people do not have access to the financial tools that most of us depend on. The research we conduct and the evidence-based change we advocate for are to ensure that all people can make use of financial products and services to improve their lives and prosper.
