USAID is reorienting the way it does business to focus on supporting our partner countries on the Journey to Self-Reliance, or their ability to solve their own development challenges. Achieving self-reliance for our partner countries will not be possible without inclusive financial systems that create jobs, build markets, strengthen resilience, and empower women and youth.
USAID is excited to host the Digital Financial Inclusion for Development (DFI4D) Forum on April 19, 2019 to showcase the latest evidence in inclusive digital financial services on development outcomes, emerging models and best practices.
Join USAID on April 19 to learn how digital financial inclusion paves pathways to self-reliance. RSVP here!
