Product Development and Implementation: Youth Inclusion Tracking Form for Credit Products
The following self-assessement tool is based on practitioner experience in designing and delivering youth-inclusive financial (YFS) credit products and services. It has been developed for financial services providers (FSPs) who have already committed to designing and delivering youth-inclusive financial services. The purpose of this tool is to help FSPs assess whether or not they have considered various youth-specific elements during the product design and implementation process. This tool is based on the product design framework known as the 8Ps, which breaks down a financial product and service into eight key elements. In addition to considering the key elements listed below, it is also important for an institution to consider their target market segment (age, sex, marital status, etc.) when applying this tool.
This tool was created by Making Cents International in collaboration with Women's World Bank, Equity Bank, CHF International, Mennonite Economic Development Associates (MEDA), United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF), FHI 360, Freedom from Hunger (FFH), BRAC Tanzania and the YouthSave Consortium: Save the Children, New America Foundation (NAF), and Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP).
