insight2impact (i2i)

Description (bio):

insight2impact (i2i) is a global resource centre supporting the use of data for decision-making by public and private sector actors, with a focus on financial inclusion. We conduct research into how financial service providers (FSPs) can use data to improve their offerings to the unserved and underserved. We also partner directly with FSPs, fintechs and data solution providers to support the implementation of innovative data applications. i2i’s open data portal facilitates access to data. In our work with regulators, we support evidence-based policymaking in the interest of low-income clients. Through all of this, we aim to unleash the power of data for financial inclusion. i2i is co-hosted by Cenfri and FinMark Trust and funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in partnership with The MasterCard Foundation.
