In achieving UNCDF’s vision to create an inclusive digital economy, we focus on the inclusion of low to moderately low income people in China, especially women, youth, gig economy workers, aeging population, and micro and small entrepreneurs. The goal is for these segments to fully benefit from the transformational benefits that digital innovation has to offer to improve their productivity and livelihoods, and above all, meet their aspirations in life.
UNCDF also runs the Financial Innovation Lab (FinLab). Successful implementation of new ideas is most often accomplished by iterative improvements of a compelling solution to a clear problem. Research. Design. Test. Repeat. UNCDF China thus aims to support financial service providers and tech start-ups to embrace a culture of ‘testing and learning’ and challenge them to find innovations that improve the financial health of low income peoples.
