The International Finance Corporation has signed an agreement with a bank in Morocco to boost financial inclusion in Africa with emphasis on microfinance programs. 

A majority of adults in Sub-Saharan Africa still lack access to regulated and sustainable financial services, despite a remarkable increase in financial inclusion in the region from 23% in 2011 to 43% in 2017, according to the 2018 Findex data.
