The Financial Inclusion Compass was launched by European Microfinance Platform in 2018. The publication is based on a sector-wide mixed-methodology survey of various stakeholders, giving the chance for practitioners, investors, donors, academics and support service providers, among others to present their thoughts on the trends, future areas of focus, challenges and opportunities for inclusive finance in the short, medium and long term.

This special edition of the ‘Compass’ series specifically focused on the current challenges, medium-term priorities, concerns, opportunities and forecasts for the financial inclusion sector which is facing probably the greatest crisis in its modern history. The report reveals a sector that is highly anxious about the consequences of the pandemic and especially the economic downturn – on liquidity-starved providers, on investors, but most of all on clients.
