SADC FI Forum 2019

Four years ago, SADC committed itself to regional financial inclusion strategy which seeks to provide a benchmark document that Member States can use in the development and monitoring of their own national strategies. The 2019 Forum will provide recommendations on how SADC can move forward in putting the strategy to drive financial inclusion in the region into operation.
