Building a business is hard, harder still to build a business that serves the poor. There are no ready-made templates. There is a limited understanding of low-income consumers, they are tougher to reach, slower to adopt digital platforms and have limited digital footprints. While new technology platforms are being built that potentially make the cost economics of serving this segment work, deploying these emergent platforms is often technically challenging. The Financial Inclusion Lab is an accelerator program that seeks to identify, nurture and bring to scale promising innovations that significantly enhance the financial health of the underserved by equipping them with access to capital, markets, insights, training, and support they need to overcome these challenges and scale up.
