Cenfri is one of Africa’s leading economic impact agencies. We seek to boost economic growth and increase the benefits from sustainable development to low-income households and businesses in emerging markets. In collaboration with our partners, we undertake research and offer capacity-building, convening and innovation support to businesses, governments, regulators and donors in Africa and beyond.
Since 2008, we have been established as recognised thought leaders on financial sector development and the digital economy in emerging markets. Our 50-strong team has experience in over 35 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America.
Our purpose is to empower people to solve problems that matter – to create ideas and solutions that have lasting impact.
Our vision is a world where all people can live their financial and digital lives optimally, thereby unlocking growth, development and welfare in their lives and in economies.
As recognised thought leaders and opinion-shapers on economic inclusion in a digital Africa, we generate and share deep insights, and we empower key stakeholders to apply those insights to catalyse system-level change for long-term development impact. We do this through multi-year programmes, bespoke consulting projects, technical assistance to regulators and the public sector, ecosystem mapping and development, capacity-building, as well as innovation support to the private sector.
