Organisation short name: i2i
Description (bio):

insight2impact (i2i) is a global resource centre supporting the use of data for decision-making by public and private sector actors, with a focus on financial inclusion. We conduct research into how financial service providers (FSPs) can use data to improve their offerings to the unserved and underserved. We also partner directly with FSPs, fintechs and data solution providers to support the implementation of innovative data applications. i2i’s open data portal facilitates access to data. In our work with regulators, we support evidence-based policymaking in the interest of low-income clients. Through all of this, we aim to unleash the power of data for financial inclusion. i2i is co-hosted by Cenfri and FinMark Trust and funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in partnership with The MasterCard Foundation.

We aim to unlock development outcomes by mobilising the data market and catalysing the generation and use of high quality, client-centric data. We accomplish this by advancing measurement frameworks, client research, and the innovative use and collection of data with the purpose of improving the effectiveness of financial inclusion policies, products, and programmes. We aim to be the leading global resource centre for financial inclusion data.
