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.

Billions of people do not have access to the financial products and services that can help build businesses, pay for health and education expenses, and more. At CFI, we conduct research and advocate for evidence-based change to ensure that all people can make use of financial products and services to improve their lives and prosper.
