Maputo Accord. SME Finance: Path to Greater Financial Inclusion

The Maputo Accord was launched in September 2015 at the AFI Global Policy Forum in Mozambique, where member institutions pledged to support access to finance for SMEs.

At the AFI Annual General Meeting in September 2021, member institutions convened virtually to update the Maputo Accord on access to finance for small and medium enterprises, as a pathway to greater financial inclusion.

The Maputo Accord reaffirms the AFI network's commitment to put in place financial inclusion policies that create enabling environments for cost-effective access to financial services. This includes by making full use of appropriate innovative technology and substantially lowering costs associated with financial services.
