The African Financial Inclusion Policy Initiative (AfPI) Factsheet

In May 2017, leaders from AFI member institutions in Africa decided to broaden the scope of the regional initiative and change its name from African Mobile Phone Financial Services Policy Initiative (AMPI) to African Financial Inclusion Policy Initiative (AfPI). AfPI is the primary platform for AFI’s African members to support and develop financial inclusion policy and regulatory frameworks in Africa, and to coordinate regional peer learning efforts. Since the launch of AMPI in February 2013, the focus areas for the regional initiative have expanded beyond the initial emphasis on mobile phone to include other areas such as consumer protection, financial inclusion strategies, cooperative frameworks for cross-border remittances, digital financial services, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) access to finance, financial inclusion for women and other vulnerable groups, agricultural firms access to finance, etc.
