One in seven people worldwide is a domestic or international migrant. Our work equips governments, donors, and providers with strategies for extending access to finance, support, and consumer protection to migrant communities. To be effective, however, these solutions must be carefully designed in light of the particular needs of migrants and the challenges to serving them effectively and sustainably.
Examples of our work:
Conducted a comprehensive mapping of existing and potential migrant-linked microinsurance models for the International Labour Organization
Led a study of financial needs and access among immigrants in New York City for the New York City Office of Financial Empowerment
Undertook a supply- and demand-side study for a cross-border microinsurance product between the US and Mexico for the Inter-American Development Bank
Conducted a study of hospitalization costs and financing in rural Kenya, with a focus on the role of remittances
