Partner with CGAP to Push the Frontiers of Digital Finance

Does your organization have an innovative idea for a new or enhanced digital financial product or service that meets the needs of low-income customers in Sub-Saharan Africa? If so, CGAP wants to hear from you. We are currently looking to support firms and organizations--Fintech companies, bank and non-bank financial services providers, or other players in the financial services space--by covering the costs of piloting an innovation that:
 
a) Leverages the attributes of a digital channel to significantly improve the delivery of financial services, expand usage or enhance the customer experience
and/or
 
b) Tests a new financial product, service or use case that addresses a financial need and has a compelling value proposition for the customer relative to existing formal and informal alternatives.
 
Ideas should be an innovation for the Sub-Saharan market, be relevant for financial inclusion, have the potential to scale up, be fully digital or have a significant digital component, and be ready to pilot within three months of selection in Spring 2017.
The deadline to submit an Expression of Interest is January 9, 2017.
