BFA, through its Financial Inclusion for Business Runways (FIBR) project, has supported the strengthening of Safe Water Network’s digital finance capabilities in Ghana. In close collaboration with our business analytics and field implementation teams, BFA helped design a payment digitization initiative, allowing for automated payment collection, as well as prepayment through a new unstructured supplementary service data (USSD) application. BFA also supported product design and piloting of a pay-as-you-go water loan product for Safe Water Network’s household connections program in Ghana.

BFA is a global consulting firm leveraging finance and technology to innovate solutions for a sustainable and equitable world where people have agency over their future and their most pressing challenges are proactively addressed in a timely manner.
