The Center for Financial Inclusion (CFI) is an independent think tank housed at Accion that works to better serve, protect and empower clients. We learn, test and share insights; promote concrete solutions; and advocate for inclusive, responsible finance that helps – not harms – individuals. We collaborate with stakeholders globally to achieve our goal of enabling 3 billion people who are left out of – or poorly served by – the financial sector to improve their lives.
As an industry-facing body, our business model is intentionally participatory, collaborative and consultative. We value deeply and benefit greatly from the input of our partners, sponsors, and peers that collectively contribute to our mission of achieving financial inclusion. We welcome partnership and collaboration and build it into our model.
We are especially grateful to our Founding Partner Credit Suisse for their longtime support since our inception in 2008.
