In 2018, the Center for Financial Inclusion at Accion is celebrating its 10th anniversary and using this as an opportunity to celebrate progress, but mostly to look to the future. CFI invites the Financial Inclusion Week 2018 community to join them in this journey and reflect on the question, “What do we need to get right?” What do we need to get right to ensure that gains in access lead to true improvements in the lives of the underserved? What are the great upcoming risks that we need to address now to protect customers?

The 2017 Global Findex revealed that an additional 515 million people have opened an account since 2014, however key metrics for usage and savings have declined. During Financial Inclusion Week 2018, partner organizations around the globe will hold conversation focused on how to bridge this gap and get inclusion right.
