Advancing SDGs for Financial Inclusion
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are an urgent call to action by all countries - developed and developing - to recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change. Financial inclusion is central to achieving many of the SGDs, and in our quarterly impact reporting we track our portfolio companies' contribution to these critical goals.
