On July 15, a multinational group of partners gathered virtually to mark the launch of Financial Capability and Asset Building in Africa (FCAB Africa), a new collaboration aimed at meeting these needs. It will enlist financial-service providers and human-service professionals to improve the financial knowledge of disadvantaged populations as well as their access to sound financial guidance and financial services.

“This launch is a celebration of FCAB Africa and also a statement of vision, progress, and planning for the future.”
