CARE’s recently completed POWER Africa project increased the financial inclusion of over 750,000 poor, food insecure individuals and their households in Rwanda, Burundi, Ethiopia and Côte d’Ivoire. The project was anchored around CARE’s Village Savings and Loan Association (VSLA) methodology and a suite of layered trainings geared toward entrepreneurship and business management. CARE worked with local organizations and government to form, train, and link Village Savings and Loan Association groups to financial service providers, mobile network operators and markets. What worked? What didn’t work? How can this learning inform current and future programs?
