Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU); Inter-American Development Bank (IDB)
The Global Microscope assesses the regulatory environment for financial inclusion across 12 indicators and 55 countries. The Microscope was originally developed for countries in the Latin American and Caribbean regions in 2007 and was expanded into a global study in 2009. Most of the research for this report, which included interviews and desk analysis, was conducted between April and August 2016. This work was supported by funding 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.
