FSD Network

FSD Mozambique is part of a family of 9 financial sector deepening, or FSD programmes, operating across Africa.

The FSD Network is a growing family of Financial Sector Deepening (FSD) permanent institutions and programmes working across Africa to mould sustainable financial systems to work better for poor, vulnerable and marginalised populations on the continent.  It currently comprises nine institutions, with plans under way to expand in the coming years.

The FSD Network (FSDN) was officially formed on 27th September 2019 with the signing of its Charter, formalising preceding year engagement among members.  The Network works alongside governments, business leaders, non-profit organisations, research institutions, regulators and policymakers to develop more inclusive financial systems. FSDN plays a major role in enabling inclusive growth and ensuring access to basic services while assuring a sustainable future for Africa’s populations.

The FSD Network model is driven to address the needs and priorities of the different countries and the continent where we work. Each FSD programme works in collaboration with key local and regional stakeholders to engage opportunities and tackle constraints to inclusive financial systems development. The following are the current members of the FSD Network: Access to Finance Rwanda, EFInA Nigeria, FinMark Trust South Africa, FSD Africa, FSD Kenya, FSD Mozambique, FSD Tanzania, FSD Uganda and FSD Zambia.

The FSD Network identifies, demonstrates and scales ways to enhance inclusive growth through effective financing investments. It improves gender equity by finding financial solutions to the needs of poor and marginalised households and supporting innovation of financial system infrastructure at local and regional levels. FSDN will support the emergence of better regulatory frameworks and enhance the integrity of financial systems across the continent to underpin impact, stability, competition and control of illicit financial flows.
