Financial Inclusion Network, Bangladesh (FIN-B)
InM is working towards forming the Financial Inclusion Network-Bangladesh (FIN-B) to develop, share and disseminate knowledge and expertise on financial inclusion through stimulating exchanges, developing collaboration, and promoting the Network to its members as a knowledge partner in their preferred areas of inclusive finance.
FIN-B will leverage expertise in advancing financial inclusion as a key instrument for poverty reduction and inclusive growth and development. It will be a unique platform to bring together all financial sector stakeholders including banks/MFIs/NGOs/financial institutions/local government and grassroots organisations for sharing ideas and best practices from home and abroad. For ensuring effective functioning of FIN-B, a Steering Committee has been formed under the Chairmanship of Dr. Qazi Kholiquzzaman Ahmad, Chairman of InM and PKSF including representatives from Bangladesh Bank, Financial Institutions Division of the Ministry of Finance, banks, MFIs and other stakeholders for providing guidance to the Network.
The first Steering Committee (SC) meeting of FIN-B was held on 23 October 2017 at PKSF Conference Room in which important decisions to activate the Network were taken. It was decided that FIN-B will be formally launched in January 2018 through organising a day long workshop on its future activities.
