Delivering formal financial services to savings groups: A handbook for financial service providers

This handbook is a reference guide for financial service providers, for the effective design and delivery of financial services for savings groups.

In many countries, savings groups are one of the most – if not the most – well organised and pervasive potential customer segment seeking access to formal financial services. With the support of this guide, financial service providers and their partners have a new go-to resource to design solutions that can effectively meet this demand, drive financial inclusion and close critical access gaps for women and other excluded populations.
