This evaluation focuses on the first objective of the FSDPS, namely: “Increasing access to a range of quality, reliable, and affordable financial services geared to the needs of all segments of society, paying particular attention to reaching the traditionally underserved (including women and youth) through the most effective approaches, including innovations consistent with the requirements of financial stability.” The two other objectives are deepening financial markets and safeguarding the stability of Africa’s financial system (AfDB 2014). In addition to this report, the evaluation is composed of a policy and strategy review, a portfolio review and a final summary report to be considered by the Committee of Development Effectiveness. Findings from the country case studies are presented by clusters of financial instruments extended by the AfDB to financial institutions and governments in the selected countries.
