SEEP Practitioner Learning Program: Institutionalizing Youth Financial Services to Achieve Scale

SEEP Practitioner Learning Program: Institutionalizing Youth Financial Services to Achieve Scale
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 technical note. In this technical note, FINCA Uganda and Hatton National Bank Sri Lanka (HNB) explore key components and issues around the institutionalization of youth financial services, based on their individual experiences. Topics that are explored include key considerations, steps, and challenges of institutionalization. While some universal aspects of institutionalization are covered, this document primarily examines differences in institutionalizing youth financial products as opposed to financial products targeted to non-youth.
