The MAP diagnostic looks to understand

the market demand based on income,

economic activity, and usage of financial services within countries

About Making Access Possible

The MAP diagnostic approach – a result of the programme’s unique analytical framework – looks to build a picture of market demand based on household and individual income, economic activity, and current usage of financial services within a diverse array of countries and local contexts.

In this way, the MAP programme hopes to achieve the following objectives:

Encourage providers of financial services to deliver products and services to those segments of the population that are currently underserved.

Enable policymakers and regulators to understand current policies and regulations that are inhibiting market growth and to develop a strategic vision on financial inclusion and the possible delivery modalities.

MAP and the SDGs

The MAP diagnostic approach – a result of the programme’s unique analytical framework – looks to build a picture of market demand based on household and individual income, economic activity, and current usage of financial services within a diverse array of countries and local contexts.

By strengthening how finance works for poor people at the household, small enterprise, and local infrastructure levels, UNCDF contributes to SDG 1 on eradicating poverty and SDG 17 on the means of implementation. By identifying those market segments where innovative financing models can have transformational impact in helping to reach the last mile and address exclusion and inequalities of access, UNCDF contributes to a number of different SDGs.
