MetLife Foundation and MicroSave launched the i3 (Innovate, Implement and Impact) program at Dhaka’s Pan Pacific Sonargaon hotel on Monday.

The primary objective of the program is to further financial inclusion in Bangladesh.

ICT and banking industry experts recommended utilizing Mobile Financial Services (MFS), present in Bangladesh, to achieve this goal.

Regional Director for Asia at MicroSave Manoj K Sharma said: “Although the mobile financial services in Bangladesh have been very successful, it is time to build upon this success story and translate it into a larger play around financial inclusion.”
