MAP was launched in Zimbabwe in June 2015. MAP seeks to advance financial inclusion and supports expanding access to an appropriate portfolio of financial services for individuals and micro-and small-businesses that are either underserved or un-served. MAP focuses on interventions by Government, the Private Sector and other stakeholders that seek to enhance Financial Inclusion and Access-to-Financial services (ATF) by the marginalised population. In March 2016, MAP Implementation Roadmap was presented to stakeholders.
The MAP project is formally hosted by MOFED, with the cooperation of RBZ. A MAP Steering Committee was formed to oversee the MAP diagnostic and Roadmap implementation process. The MAP Steering Committee is chaired by the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development.
