About the Center for Financial Inclusion at Accion
The Center for Financial Inclusion at Accion (CFI) is an action-oriented think tank that engages and challenges the financial services industry to better serve, protect and empower clients. We develop insights, advocate on behalf of clients and collaborate with stakeholders to achieve a comprehensive vision for financial inclusion. We are dedicated to enabling 3 billion people who are left out of – or poorly served by – the financial sector to improve their lives.
As an industry-facing body, our business model is intentionally participatory, collaborative and consultative. We value deeply and benefit greatly from the input of our partners, sponsors, and peers that collectively contribute to our mission of achieving financial inclusion. We welcome partnership and collaboration and build it into our model. More at https://www.centerforfinancialinclusion.org
