The Making Finance Work for Africa (MFW4A) Partnership is a G8 initiative launched under the African Development Bank Group (AfDB) in October 2007. Its mission is the establishment of a common platform for the harmonization and facilitation of financial sector development and knowledge sharing in Africa. The Partnership brings together donor partners, African governments, the private sector, and other financial sector stakeholders with the aim of unleashing the full potential of Africa's financial sector in order to drive economic development and reduce poverty across the continent.
