Invitation to Tender: Documenting Impact Stories for the FSD Network
FSD Africa is a non-profit company which aims to increase prosperity, create jobs and reduce poverty by bringing about a transformation in financial markets in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) and in the economies, they serve. It provides know-how and capital to champions of change whose ideas, influence and actions will make finance more useful to African businesses and households.
Through access to finance initiatives, it seeks to build financial inclusion. Through capital market development, it looks to promote economic growth and increase investment. As a regional programme, it seeks to encourage collaboration, knowledge transfer and market-building activities – especially in Fragile and Conflict Affected States (FCAS).
Where there are opportunities to drive financial market transformation more quickly and intensively through capital investment, FSD Africa will deploy equity, loans or guarantees as the situation requires.
FSD Network is an alliance of organisations or ‘FSDs’ that reduce poverty through financial sector development in sub-Saharan Africa. FSD Africa provides strategic and operational support to the FSD Network. Besides FSD Africa, there are ten FSD structures – FinMark Trust, a regional programme based in South Africa, and nine country-based FSDs in DRC, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.
FSD Africa wishes to appoint a storyteller to capture, in both written and audio-visual format, the outcomes and impact of the FSD Network in their mandate of reducing poverty through inclusive financial market development in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). The outputs from the assignment shall highlight the achievements registered by the FSD Network during the 16 years of its collective operation.
