According to IFC website, AS Client and IFC intend to work together to define a winning partnership with one or several MMOs in Sub Saharan Africa to provide easier access to financial services to existing and new clients of both the MFI and the MMOs. The goal of this project is to expand outreach, to take advantage of strategic partnerships, to increase outreach to previously ignored segments such as rural areas and financial excluded individuals.
The project aims to provide technical advisory services to support AS Client to develop a strategically relevant partnership with one or more MMOs in Sub Saharan Africa to increase access to financial services in the country. Further, the environmental and social risks will continue to be reviewed throughout the life-cycle of the project.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org. You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org/
