New Learning Paper on Indirect pathways to the creation of work opportunities in the Mastercard Foundation Fund for Rural Prosperity portfolio

Africa, the youngest and fastest-growing continent in the world, faces an important job creation challenge. This is the context in which the Mastercard Foundation Fund for Rural Prosperity operates. While the Fund focuses primarily on financial inclusion, there is some increasing evidence that Fund-supported products and services are resulting in new work opportunities.

IPE TripleLine’s latest learning paper for Mastercard Foundation Fund for Rural Prosperity proposes a framework for understanding and tracking how the portfolio contributes to rural employment creation across the continent.

This Learning Paper explores 3 indirect pathways that have the potential for work creation:

  • Facilitating agricultural production
  • Encouraging the development of the rural services sector and
  • Strengthening local economies.
