Wade Channel, retired senior adviser on gender and development at USAID, lauded Deloitte’s approach. “Through their sustained partnership and private sector perspective, Deloitte has helped USAID adopt more private-sector, market-oriented approaches to women’s financial inclusion—and this has improved our program design and impact.”
Among the solutions Deloitte helps clients pursue are leveraging the fintech ecosystem, accessing new markets through movable property lending, using technology to reduce the cost of regulatory compliance, and considering alternative credit scoring models.
“We want to catalyze impact as broadly as possible,” says Allie O’Shea, manager, Deloitte LLP. The objective is to reach the inflection point where inclusive organizations in underserved markets become profitable. Across the globe, helping small businesses succeed is making an impact for both individuals and their communities.
