It creates new opportunities for poor people and their communities by increasing access to microfinance and investment capital. <span class="caps">UNCDF</span> focuses on Africa and the poorest countries of Asia and the Pacific, with a special commitment to countries emerging from conflict or crisis. It provides seed capital – grants and loans – and technical support to help microfinance institutions reach more poor households and small businesses, and local governments finance the capital investments – water systems, feeder roads, schools, irrigation schemes – that will improve poor peoples’ lives. <br /> <span class="caps">UNCDF</span> works to enlarge peoples’ choices: it believes that poor people and communities should take decisions about their own development. Its programmes help to empower women – over 50% of the clients of <span class="caps">UNCDF</span>-supported microfinance institutions are women – and its expertise in microfinance and local development is shaping new responses to food insecurity, climate change and other challenges. <span class="caps">UNCDF</span> works in challenging environments – remote rural areas, countries emerging from conflict – and paves the way for others to follow. Its programmes are designed to catalyze larger investment flows from the private sector, development partners and national governments, for significant impact on the Millennium Development Goals, especially Goal 1: Eradicate Extreme Poverty and Hunger, Goal 3: Promote Gender Equality and Empower Women, and Goal 7: Ensure Environmental Sustainability. <br /> Established by the General Assembly in 1966 and with headquarters in New York, <span class="caps">UNCDF</span> is an autonomous UN organization affiliated with <span class="caps">UNDP</span>. <br /> Despite the rapid growth of the microfinance industry in the past ten years, it is estimated that between two and three billion people still lack access to a broad range of financial products and services on a sustainable basis. The situation is particularly dire in the <span class="caps">LDC</span>s, where often more than 90 per cent of the population is denied access to financial services from the formal financial system. <span class="caps">UNCDF</span> focuses its strategy on Financial inclusion, which is universal access, at a reasonable cost, to a wide range of financial services, provided by a variety of sound and sustainable institutions. The range of financial services includes savings, short and long-term credit, leasing and factoring, mortgages, insurance, pensions, payments, local money transfers and international remittances. <br /> <span class="caps">UNCDF</span> manages a number of initiatives related to digital financial (DF): <br /> Mobile Money for the Poor (MM4P) <br /> With support from Australian Government, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (“DFAT” formerly AusAid), the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (<span class="caps">BMGF</span>) and the MasterCard Foundation (<span class="caps">MCF</span>), <span class="caps">UNCDF</span> manages Mobile Money for the Poor (MM4P), a global thematic initiative that addresses the opportunities and challenges of implementing branchless banking and mobile money in challenging markets in Africa and Asia. <br /> MM4P’s long-term mission is to help low income and rural households in <span class="caps">LDC</span>s increase their financial security through appropriate, affordable and secure means to receive, manage and save money through these “digital finance” (DF). To do so, its intermediate goal is to help build inclusive digital financial sectors such that a wide range of digital financial services are provided responsibly, and at reasonable cost, by sustainable institutions in a well-regulated environment. UNCDF’s starts by defining the different stages of a market’s development and the range of interventions needed at different levels (i.e. macro, meso, micro, client) to move it across the stages. This combines a making markets work for the poor approach with UNCDF’s traditional operational model of directly supporting the most crucial level – retail service providers. <br /> MM4P is currently implementing this programme in eight countries (Benin, Laos, Nepal, Liberia, Malawi, Senegal, Uganda and Zambia). <br /> Better Than Cash Alliance <br /> The Better Than Cash Alliance seeks to leverage the leadership of governments, the networks of development organizations and the expertise of the private sector in payment technologies to replace the use of cash in their programming and payment streams with electronic payments, where appropriate. It also seeks to build the financial capability of low-income clients who will benefit from electronic payments and a wider range of financial services. <br /> The Better Than Cash Alliance: <br /> Advocates for the use of all forms of electronic payments where they provide a preferable payment option to cash; <br /> Collaborates with program partners to mobilize available technical expertise and resources to identify and <br /> Implement the most effective approach to make the transition from cash to electronic payments; and <br /> Conducts research, documents good practices and produces knowledge products to address the barriers to adoption and drive the effective shift from cash to electronic payments globally.</p><br /><br /><a href="http://jobs.thegiin.org/job/2436/result-management-analyst-uncdf-at-uncdf/">Apply to this job</a><br /> http://jobs.thegiin.org/job/2436/result-management-analyst-uncdf-at-uncdf/ [Full-time] RESULT MANAGEMENT ANALYST - UNCDF at UNCDF 2015-03-03 09:31:52 <strong>Location:</strong> Bogotá, Colombia<br /><strong>URL:</strong> <a href="http://instiglio.org">http://instiglio.org</a><br /><br /><strong>Description:</strong><br /> <p>Instiglio envisions a world where every cent spent to eradicate poverty has the greatest possible impact on the lives of the 2.4 billion men, women, and children afflicted by it.
