2015: International Financial Inclusion Funding Data
Conducted annually since 2008, the CGAP Funders Survey, conducted in partnership with MIX, is the most comprehensive source of analysis on primary sources of international funding for microfinance and financial inclusion. After steadily increasing in previous years, international funding of financial inclusion is estimated to have plateaued at $31 billion in 2014. Twenty-three funders participated in the 2015 survey, accounting for 66 percent of this year’s global estimate. Among the 21 funders who have reported annually, commitments grew by 3 percent in 2013 U.S. dollars, but marked a small decline in current exchange rates due to a weaker euro at the end of 2014.
