2017 Funders Survey: Landscape for Financial Inclusion Funding

Conducted annually since 2008 and in partnership with MIX since 2012, the CGAP Funders Survey is the most comprehensive source of analysis on primary sources of international funding for microfinance and financial inclusion. The 2017 survey reports data from 23 funders and outlines financial instruments used, purpose of funding, type of funding (e.g. public, private), geographic allocation and more. What are the key takeaways from the data? Which countries are receiving the most funding? Are these investments making a difference? In this blog series, we look to the data for answers.
