The Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI) brings together central bank regulators and other financial policymakers to work together on the development of regulatory frameworks that enable financial inclusion. AFI members come from more than 90 developing countries, where the majority of the world's unbanked reside. Through different modes of cooperation, peer learning, and knowledge sharing, AFI members have pioneered some of the most innovative policy approaches to extending the financial system to the unbanked, while balancing safety and stability.

One of the best examples of AFI’s financial inclusion advocacy work is the Maya Declaration, the first global and measurable set of commitments by policymakers from developing countries which aims to unlock the economic and social potential of 2 billion people through greater financial inclusion.
