POWER Africa objectives

POWER Africa has four key outcomes that mirror the financial inclusion ladder (see diagram below). Each POWER country's activities reolve around different steps of thelader. Burundi and Ethiopia focus on outcomes 1, 2 and 4; Rwanda implements around outcomes 1, 3 and 4; and Côte d'Ivoire works in all outcome areas.

Refine models of scale up to existing village savings and loan associations (VSLA) networks to reach ultra-poor and vulnerable populations
