            Proposals Invited for Marketplace on Innovative Financial Solutions 
for Development + Grants for Increase Access to Financial Services 
FYI and you might want to forward to interested groups. Sorry if duplicated.

1. Proposals Invited for Marketplace on Innovative Financial Solutions for 

The Agence Française de Développement (AFD), Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, 
and the World Bank will co-host an international Marketplace on Innovative 
Financial Solutions for Development (2010 MIF) to be held in Paris on March, 
4-5 2010. 

The 2010 MIF will be dedicated to smart, fine-tuned, innovative financial 
mechanisms for mobilizing, channeling, and spending funds for development 
issues. The event will bring together development practioners, donors, 
philanthropists, social entrepreneurs, academics, representatives from across a 
range of financial institutions and policy makers to exchange experience and 
ideas on innovative development finance solutions. The 2010 MIF will be 
structured around workshops and a marketplace where innovators can showcase 
their initiatives and projects. 

The main objectives of the event are to: 

advance the agenda on innovative financial solutions for development; 
facilitate knowledge sharing and learning, including South/South learning, on 
what kinds of innovative financial solutions for development work, what don't, 
and how to design these solutions to maximize development impact and 
spur the evolution of cutting-edge projects that apply innovative financial 
mechanisms to development challenges. 

The Competition 

A key feature of the 2010 MIF will be a competition to garner and highlight 
fresh ideas on how innovative financing mechanisms can be used to better solve 
development challenges at local, country, regional, or global levels, with the 
goal that successful innovations can be scaled up and replicated broadly. 

The winners will be awarded pilot grants to assist them in the implementation 
of their proposals. 

Proposals are welcomed from all organizations involved in innovative finance 
focused on development, including financial institutions, private-sector 
companies, social enterprises, non-governmental and civil society 
organizations, government agencies, universities and other academic 
organizations, foundations, and development organizations. Guidelines and 
application forms can be accessed on this website. 

Proposals must be submitted by November 15th 2009. 



2. Grants for Increase Access to Financial Services

Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI), managed on behalf of its members by the 
German development organization (GTZ) and supported with a $35 million grant 
from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is a coalition of countries from the 
developing world committed to making savings accounts, insurance, and other 
financial services available to millions of people living on less than $2 a day.

AFI's global network will enable developing countries to share knowledge so 
they can more effectively develop and implement policies designed to expand 
access to financial services. While many of the smartest policies to expand 
financial access have come from developing countries - such as mobile phone 
money transfer services in Kenya and agent banking in Brazil - knowledge of 
these solutions is scattered in pockets around the globe. 

AFI provides policymakers with short- and long-term grants to develop and 
implement the most effective solutions for their countries' individual 

Short-term grants are for addressing specific issues or making advances in the 
policy formulation process in preparation for larger initiatives. These grants, 
which cover a period of 6 to 12 months, will lead to outputs such as diagnostic 
studies, draft regulations and manuals, as well as build capacity in policy and 
regulatory agencies. The budget range for short-term proposals is $50,000 to 

Long-term grants are for implementing specific policy solutions that facilitate 
a rapid and significant expansion of financial services to the poor. The 
implementation period for these grants will be over 1 to 4 years. The normal 
budget range for long-term proposals is $400,000 to $1,200,000. AFI can also 
connect policymakers to donors and private sector partners for additional 
implementation support.

Knowledge exchange grants will be made available to raise collective awareness 
of policy solutions, create technical partnerships between countries, and link 
stakeholders to significantly develop the policy dialogue about universal 
access. Examples of knowledge exchanges include staff exchanges, study tours, 
national and regional conferences, peer reviews and regional working groups. 
The budget range for knowledge exchange proposals is $25,000 to $75,000. 
Applicants may apply independently or in association with desired exchange 

Who is eligible? AFI is looking for a diverse portfolio of grantees across the 
developing world, with a focus on Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East 
and Eastern Europe. The short- and long-term grants are primarily targeted at 
regional, national and sub-national government institutions including Central 
Banks, Finance or other Ministries, regulatory oversight bodies and public 
banks. However, South-South exchange proposals may also be submitted by 
microfinance networks and associations.
