The UN Capital Development Fund makes public and private finance work for the poor in the world’s 46 least developed countries (LDCs). UNCDF offers “last mile” finance models that unlock public and private resources, especially at the domestic level, to reduce poverty and support local economic development.
UNCDF’s financing models work through three channels: (1) inclusive digital economies, which connects individuals, households, and small businesses with financial eco-systems that catalyze participation in the local economy, and provide tools to climb out of poverty and manage financial lives; (2) local development finance, which capacitates localities through fiscal decentralization, innovative municipal finance, and structured project finance to drive local economic expansion and sustainable development; and (3) investment finance, which provides catalytic financial structuring, de-risking, and capital deployment to drive SDG impact and domestic resource mobilization.
About UNCDF Myanmar
UNCDF has been operating in Myanmar since 2012 with a capital mandate to expand savings-led financial inclusion and use localized investments to drive poverty reduction and sustainable development. The country program seeks to improve financial service access and usage to achieve equitable, sustainable, and inclusive growth within the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Myanmar Sustainable Development Plan (MSDP), which includes the use of innovate solutions to bring formal services for people at the bottom of the pyramid.
“Expanding Financial Access” (EFA) is the core programme in Myanmar and works hand in hand at the country level with other regional and global UNCDF.
In a pre-pandemic scenario, the need for digital products such as digital loan repayments or electronic cash transfers was a good accomplishment for the financial sector and humanitarian and development actors.In a post-pandemic scenario, faced with the double impact of the ongoing political and humanitarian crisis in the country, the need for digital products such as digital loan repayments or electronic cash transfers is an essential accomplishment for the financial sector and humanitarian and development actors. With an increasing number of marginalized segments, restricted mobility, and a growing poverty rate, digital payments are critical to deliver resources to vulnerable populations in hard-to-reach areas and become a necessary consideration for financial institutions in these fluid contexts.
