Project Description

Founded in 1961, Accion is a global non-profit organisation committed to creating a financially inclusive world, with a pioneering legacy in microfinance and impact investing. It catalyses financial service providers to deliver high-quality, affordable solutions at scale.

This framework agreement will enable Accion to provide support to FMO Clients across the globe, strengthening their capacities to empower entrepreneurs and contributing to building a better world. In 2019, it is expected to support clients such as DAWN and PGMF in Myanmar, and to multiple clients worldwide through the Africa Board Fellowship and the Fintech CEO Forum and Financial Inclusion Summit, among others. The framework agreement aims to build value among FMO Clients by improving their strategic, technical, and operational leadership, either through traditional consultancy projects or through networking and convening activities.

The framework is closely aligned with FMO’s strategy as it strives to deepen relationships with our clients, create high-impact portfolios, and to generate higher productivity among current and potential clients through the dissemination of FMO’s knowledge across sectors and regions. Moreover, Accion has proven to be a capable and reliable partner in the development ecosystems where collaboration increases and innovation thrives.
