We are pleased to bring you a new e-book, Capturing our Impact:  Harnessing Innovation for Financial Inclusion.

These are the impact stories, videos and photos that put faces behind the numbers and illustrate that digital innovation not only unlocks basic, life-changing financial services for low-income people, but it also enables the delivery of clean water, solar energy, education and other essential products and services.

Capturing Our Impact also shows how the World Bank Group consistently pushes the boundaries of what is possible in revolutionizing financial services through technology, particularly in the world’s most challenging markets. For instance, in Yemen, IFC launched a mobile-money service in the midst of war. In Ethiopia, the Bank made it possible to digitize social-transfer payments for people who chronically lack adequate food. And in Uganda, CGAP helped a pay-as-you-go solar company to design an education-loan product to help its customers pay for school. 

We hope you enjoy these stories and learn from them.
