USAID’s Digital Finance practice builds resilience and strengthens markets by supporting USAID Missions and partner countries to expand access and use of digital financial services—mobile money, savings, access to credit, insurance, and other digitally enabled services—to accelerate development goals and achieve inclusive and sustainable infrastructure.


 

Partnership and Alliance Building

As a co-founder of the Better Than Cash Alliance (BTCA), executive committee member for the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP), and active member in the broader digital finance community of practice we collaborate with industry leaders and governments to support inclusive policies that expand relevant, life enhancing financial services to customers at the base of the economic pyramid.

USAID Mission Engagement

One of our key priorities is to support USAID Missions, Bureaus and Independent Offices. To support this effort, we provide turnkey DFS tools and resources, as well as technical expertise and vision to implement those tools effectively, pairing implementation with integrated capacity building.

Training and Capacity Building

We build knowledge and capacity of our USAID Missions and partners to integrate digital financial services into projects and programs to enable achievement of objectives across a variety of development sectors such as agriculture and food security, health, education, energy and humanitarian assistance.

About USAID's Center for Digital Development

The rapid development and adoption of digital technology are transforming industries, governments, economies, and societies. Digital ecosystems hold immense potential to help people live more free and prosperous lives. At the same time, digital transformation comes with the risk of increasing inequality, repression, and instability. Together with our partners, USAID works to end the need for foreign assistance through digitally supported programming that fosters partner countries’ self-reliance and maximizes the benefits, while managing the risks, that digital technology introduces into the lives of the communities we serve.
