FIN-B provides a platform to develop, share and disseminate knowledge and expertise in financial inclusion through stimulating exchanges, developing collaboration and supporting its members to develop as centres of excellence in their preferred areas of inclusive finance.
The principal aim is to leverage expertise in advancing financial inclusion as a key instrument for poverty reduction and inclusive growth and development in Bangladesh. The Network is a unique platform to bring together all financial sector stakeholders including government organisations/financial regulators/banks/MFIs/NGOs/financial institutions/local government and grassroots organisations for sharing ideas and best practices from home and abroad.
FIN-B has been launched in 2017 and a high-powered Steering Committee (SC) has been set up to guide and supervise the activities of the Network. InM also publishes FIN-Biz, a special bi-annual magazine of FIN-B (inm.org.bd/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/FIN-BIZ-June2018.pdf contains the first issue). The next issue of FIN-Biz will be available in December 2018.
An initiative has been taken by FIN-B to organise a special international conference on financial inclusion during the first half of 2019. It is expected that, through this knowledge sharing and networking activity, FIN-B will help promote ‘financial inclusion for all’ which will go a long way towards achieving the SDGs by 2030 and fulfilling the dream of making the country a developed one by 2041.
