Financial inclusion in Senegal is low, with only 12 percent of adults having a formal financial account. Women are especially excluded from accessing formal financial services. This has led low income people to adopt informal systems of saving, such as the tontinea type of rotating savings and credit association (ROSCA) that combines features of a lottery to determine the sequence of disbursing group funds among members. CGAP intends to procure technical services to structure and test a solution that digitizes the tontine process and works as a marketplace for financial services. The objective of the project is to identify relevant lessons and share them widely in an open access format. We expect this pilot to produce lessons on digitization of tontines and on the value proposition of bundling other financial services such as credit or insurance along with it.
Ndeye Ngom is a first-time mother in Senegal’s Fatick region, 150 kilometers southeast of Dakar, the capital city of Senegal. And like any parent, upon hearing the news that her daughter, 9-month-old Khady Faye, was underweight, Ndeye grew immediately worried. “I panicked when they told me the baby is malnourished,” Ndeye remembers. “This is not a disease we know.”

However, if these actions are taken without a conscious effort bolster the key role of women in nutrition, the country may not succeed in stymieing stunting and malnutrition in the country.

IFC is looking for a Consultant to help assess the impact of two GAFSP/IFC projects in Tanzania/Senegal , investments in two banks in Tanzania/Senegal to support their agriculture finance business. These are two separate, stand-alone, assessments. The reason they are included in this same selection is that IFC prefers to have one Consultant conduct both assessments given that they are in the same country. The methodology is expected to be quasi-experimental design with quantitative and qualitative data collection. The Consultant is expected to have extensive experience in conducting impact evaluations in the agribusiness sector in developing countries.
