SEEP Practitioner Learning Program: Building Sustainable Business Models for Youth Financial Services

SEEP Practitioner Learning Program: Building Sustainable Business Models for Youth Financial Services
MEDA facilitated the Innovations in Youth Financial Services Practitioner Learning Program, a three-year action-learning project focused on viable models for achieving scale in youth financial services, as well as understanding critical stages that organizations must move through to achieve scale.

Four learning products were developed, including this case study, which examines the experiences of Catholic Relief Services (CRS)-El Salvador, Enlace and FINCA Uganda as they work to scale up their youth financial products through incorporation into sustainable business models. In this document, CRS-El Salvador, Enlace and FINCA Uganda explore considerations around offering mission-driven and sustainable financial products to youth clients.
