REPORT: Findings from Five Youth-Inclusive Rural Finance Pilot Projects, IFAD Rural Youth Economic Empowerment Program (RYEEP) 2013-2016

Making Cents International

Rural youth in developing countries make up a large and vulnerable group. Globally, three quarters of the poor live in rural areas, and about one-half of this population is young people. This young and growing population confronts a number of challenges, including poor quality of education, lack of basic infrastructure, lack of access to or control of sufficient land for farming, and, for girls in particular, more traditional cultural norms, which severely hinder their ability to build sustainable livelihoods. In addition, accessing the financial services they need to support economic opportunities is more challenging than in urban areas, due to physical distances, the lack of financial products appropriate to rural youth circumstances, limited knowledge and experience with financial services, and poor protection measures. These challenges feed perceptions from rural youth that financial services are not accessible to them, and from providers that rural youth are not bankable.

From Good Practice to Policy Innovation: Moving the Needle on Youth Financial Capability, Sep 2016

Save the Children, New America Foundation

Financial inclusion and youth development practitioners are constantly challenged to scale the lessons from their work through policy change. This often involves an interplay between local, regional and national government, and is not necessarily straightforward or unidirectional. This session will explore how youth financial inclusion/education initiatives in Vietnam, India, and the US used project results to effect policy change at various levels of government. The session is designed to provide practitioners with a better understanding of how to translate project learnings into effective advocacy through an understanding of the often complex, opportunistic, and multilayered nature of the policy change process.
