Annual Report 2018

The Annual Report 2018 highlights the achievements of the Social Finance Programme over the past year.

In 2018, we further intensified our engagement with policy-makers and financial institutions – banks and financial cooperatives, insurance companies and investment funds – to contribute to decent work and promote sustainable and equitable economic growth. We increased capacity-building activities with financial sector practitioners through training courses, knowledge events, publications and other learning tools. Forty-eight organizations reported improvements as a result of our support. We also shared solutions with more than 140,000 stakeholders, and through our projects, we supported the extension of responsible financial services to more than 1 million low-income households, smallholder farmers and small enterprises.
