The Microscope is produced by The Economist Intelligence Unit, with policy expertise and financial support from The Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF), a member of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) Group, the Center for Financial Inclusion at Accion and the MetLife Foundation. Technical support was provided by the Institute for International Finance (IIF) and the Islamic Research and Training Institute (IRTI), a member of the Islamic Development Bank Group (IDBG). First produced in 2007, the Microscope benchmarks national progress on the enabling environment for financial inclusion. The Microscope assesses the regulatory ecosystem for financial inclusion by evaluating 12 indicators across a range of developing economies in East and South Asia, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, Middle East and North Africa, and Sub-Saharan Africa. This year’s Microscope is the third edition that looks beyond microfinance, evaluating countries across the wider landscape of financial inclusion.
