The microPension-VISA Inclusion Lab is a specialized research and development facility focused on micro-payments and financial inclusion, housed within the non-profit Micro Pension Foundation.
The Lab designs, field-tests, incubates and helps mainstream solutions to bring about financial inclusion. It harnesses technology to develop new financial literacy tools, outreach platforms and micro-payment solutions to enable secure, convenient and affordable access to mainstream financial services by low income excluded and unbanked individuals.
The Lab is designing and testing scalable and sustainable models to target 5 excluded segments: truck drivers, domestic help, contract labour, tribals and youth. In this process, the Lab works with a range of global institutions on R&D and solutions design including the International Finance Corporation (IFC), VISA and Grameen Foundation.
