The Mastercard Foundation partnership for Finance in a Digital Africa (FIDA) gathers and amplifies insights that promote financial and economic inclusion in an increasingly digital world. We do this by learning from our partners - Mastercard Foundation's Financial Inclusion portfolio - and conducting our own research, to address the sector's key information gaps. From advances in big data to the platformization of markets, we equip the digital finance community with facts in order to accelerate meaningful financial inclusion for people across sub-Saharan Africa.
FIDA is an initiative of The Mastercard Foundation, implemented by Caribou Digital UK.
If you're interested in how we and the Mastercard Foundation's portfolio partners contribute to financial inclusion, see our Theory of Change.
Our team are researchers, implementers, monitoring and evaluation experts, and creators who are immersed in the sub-Saharan Africa digital finance sector. We're passionate about building a more inclusive digital world. Feel free to email any of us directly.
