Work with us to enable 3 billion people who are left out of – or poorly served by – the financial sector to improve their lives.


An action-oriented think tank. And a part of Accion.

Thank you for your interest in working at the Center for Financial Inclusion at Accion.

We are an action-oriented think tank that engages and challenges the financial services industry to better serve, protect and empower clients. We develop insights, advocate on behalf of clients and collaborate with stakeholders to achieve a comprehensive vision for financial inclusion.

We care about the financially underserved: people who are left our of or poorly served by the financial sector, particularly those who are most vulnerable. We also know there’s a robust and growing industry that can provide better financial products and services to more people than ever before. We do our part to protect and empower low-income financial services clients and engage and challenge the industry that exists to serve them.
