Why these countries?

The FII countries represent a large proportion of the populations of Africa and Asia. They are also at varying stages of development of mobile money and other digital financial services (DFS). They include countries which are in the earlier stages (Bangladesh, Nigeria, India, Indonesia and Pakistan) but with demonstrated potential to accelerate their growth. These countries also have relatively large populations which could be positively impacted by further DFS development.

Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania are further along the DFS development spectrum and are poised to develop (or, in the case of Kenya, already developing) a full range of DFS beyond basic money transfer, including services for saving, credit, insurance and other financial tools. Generally speaking, FII tracking of activity in these countries is more frequent to account for rapid changes under way in these markets.

We expect to add more countries to the FII program in the near future.
