The Pacific Financial Inclusion Programme is Pacific-wide that has helped over 1.78 million low-income Pacific islanders gain access to financial services and financial education.
It achieves these results by funding innovation with financial services and delivery channels, supporting policy and regulatory initiatives, and empowering consumers.
The programme operates from the UNDP Pacific Office in Fiji and is present in Papua New Guinea, Samoa and Solomon Islands. It is jointly administered by the UN Capital Development Fund and the UN Development Programme, and receives funding from the Australian and New Zealand Governments, and the European Union.

What we do
The programme's objective is to increase the number of low-income Pacific islanders who adopt formal financial services. It achieves this objective by supporting financial service providers to innovate with products and services for mass market customers, supporting governments to create an enabling policy environment for financial innovation, and empowering consumers.
