The increasingly crowded savannah


Policymakers, academics, industry players, donors and other stakeholders gathered at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Thursday 8th December for the 2nd FSD Kenya annual lecture on financial inclusion. The lecture was delivered by Rafe Mazer, a financial sector policy expert at CGAP. 

Mazer, who has studied financial markets in Mexico, Ghana, the Philippines and his family’s adopted home, Kenya, noted that, “Kenya needs to increase market supervision and policy action on consumer protection and competition to support a greater diversity of providers and products types, and maximise consumer welfare.”
