In-Country Implementation (ICI) is a strategic initiative under AFI’s Phase III Strategy that aims to accelerate financial inclusion across the network by enhancing peer learning and advancing member-based endorsed accords.
The ICI program also reinforces AFI’s second strategic objective to support members in implementing financial inclusion policies. As such, it supports the provision of financial or technical support to AFI member institutions in conducting activities that aim to deliver financial inclusion policies, regulations, supervisory tools or enablers for the development of policies, such as national financial inclusion strategies. It also provides technical capacity to help establish implementation units, coordination structures and mechanisms that enhance financial inclusion at the country level.
Driven by AFI’s core ethos of a bottom-up, member-driven approach, ICI ensures that AFI continues to represent members’ views and needs while remaining neutral in the delivery of its services.
