MSC launched the Agent Network Accelerator (ANA) project to help increase the pace of financial inclusion by helping FSPs in eight Gates Foundation focus countries to build and grow their agency channel. The flagship project resulted from a multi-stakeholder partnership involving donors, investors, and financial service providers (FSPs). The ANA involved research, training, and technical assistance to advance agent network operations. The Helix Institute of Digital Finance, set up under the project, has become a premier research and training organization for financial services agents. It runs the ANA course that equips industry leaders with effective strategies and powerful tools to build, manage, and grow agent networks across a broad geography.
