Supporting financial inclusion through Fintech


Supporting financial inclusion
through Fintech


As Fintech startups contribute an increasing number of exciting innovations to the financial sector, the potential for this technology to help underserved groups achieve access to finance is growing at an unprecedented rate. The Development Facility of the European Fund for Southeast Europe (EFSE DF) is keenly interested in tapping and promoting this potential in order to drive its mission of social and economic development in Southeast Europe and the European Neighbourhood region. To this end, the EFSE DF has launched the Fincluders Network to ensure that Fintech startups with a financial inclusion angle receive the necessary support to flourish and better provide financial services to those in need of them.

The Fincluders Network brings together the most promising startups engaged in Fintech for financial inclusion to support them in accessing investors, meeting business partners and financial institutions, and attaining valuable training. Member startups are able to apply for financial support to improve their business operations, build their capacities, and access business opportunities while continuing to focus their business on providing impact and financial inclusion to underserved markets.
