SPTF Spotlight: Highlighted SPM Resources 

Financial Inclusion for Refugee Populations

In September 2016, the SPTF hosted a training of trainers on the topic of financial inclusion for refugee populations.  The training took place in Brussels, at the microStart office, and featured a combination of lectures and interactive activities designed to explore the main challenges in reaching refugees with financial products and services. A refugee microfinance client of microStart shared with the group his own experience and answered questions.  About 25 people representing different countries and stakeholder groups attended the training.  

Before this training, the participants had reviewed the draft version of Serving Refugee Populations: Guidelines for Financial Service Providers, a resource developed by the SPTF with financing from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). The SPTF is now revising the draft guidelines based on the input from training participants as well as other experts. The final version of the guidelines will be available in early 2017.

To download the training materials and learn more about our work in identifying good practice and promoting financial inclusion of refugees, visit our Refugee microfinance page and read this interview with Lene Hansen.
