The Global Financial Inclusion Infrastructure Programme (GFIP) initiative supported and accelerated the implementation of country-led reform actions to meet national financial inclusion targets, and ultimately the global “Universal Financial Access 2020” goal. It was overseen by the International Finance Corporation (IFC), part of the World Bank Group.
Momentus (formerly IFCL) conducted an end-term evaluation of the GFIP in support of IFC as the programme administrator and the GFIP bilateral donor, the Swiss Confederation’s State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO).
Our work encompassed developing an evaluation methodology, undertaking in-depth case study evaluations in four countries, multi-lingual stakeholder surveys, over 200 key informant interviews, and analysis of 21 logical frameworks. We synthesized the findings from these surveys and prepared an evaluation report with findings and recommendations.
Supported by our independent evaluation, SECO decided to invest another US$20 million.
