Advert for Consultancy to scope market constraints hindering access and usage of Digital Financial Services and Market Infrastructure and related intervention framework.
1. About AFR
Access to Finance Rwanda (AFR) is a Rwandan not for Profit organization, established in March 2010 by the governments of the United Kingdom (UK) and Rwanda and with support from the UK Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office (FCDO). Existing funders of AFR include FCDO, the MasterCard Foundation, Sweden, and USAID.
AFR’s strategic focus is stimulating financial sector development by partnering with financial institutions and other stakeholders to increase access to and use of financial services. We identify and address constraints that prevent the financial market from reaching Rwanda’s low-income population and promote innovations and learning that result in sustainable change in the financial sector. Improving access to financial services for women, the rural poor, and youth is a particular focus.
AFR is guided by the Market System’s Development (MSD) approach recognising that efforts to increase financial inclusion and financial sector development must be market led and profitable for sustainability. AFR supports the Government of Rwanda’s development objectives by aligning all its interventions to the national policy frameworks including the Financial Sector Development Programme, and the National Strategy for Transformation (NST) 2017-2024.
