Working Groups Represent Leadership and Innovation in AFI

The Alliance for Financial Inclusion's (AFI) working groups represent the thematic financial inclusion policy areas that AFI actively promotes:

  • Consumer Empowerment and Market Conduct (CEMC) Working Group

  • Financial Inclusion Strategy (FIS) Peer Learning Group;

  • Financial Inclusion Data (FID) Working Group;

  • Proportionate Application of Global Standards (GSP) Working Group;

  • Digital Financial Services (DFS) Working Group;

  • SME Finance (SMEF) Working Group

The working groups have grown considerably in number and size since the first meeting was held in 2010. They have conducted surveys of their members to share knowledge; held peer reviews to facilitate practical feedback on members’ policies, regulations and strategies; published guideline notes identifying best practices in their areas of expertise; and, contributed to policy reforms across the network by supporting members in implementing their commitments to the Maya Declaration.

Working groups are the key source of policy developments and trends in financial inclusion and serve as "communities of practice" on key financial inclusion issues. They are the primary mechanism for generating and incubating knowledge in the AFI network and provide a platform for knowledge exchange and peer learning to allow policymakers to share, deliberate and deepen knowledge and understanding on key financial inclusion issues.

Working group members and chairs are the trailblazers of the AFI network, contribute to the annual AFI Global Policy Forum (GPF) and participate in AFI's online Member Zone.
