The £18.5 million FDCF was launched in April 2000 to encourage banks and other commercial entities to develop innovative approaches to extend sustainable financial services to poor people and to enterprises that employ poor people. The Post-Completion Review was a mandatory review to assess the extent to which planned outputs have been achieved and also capture lessons for the future. The scope of the exercise was to review the progress of the FDCF against the objectives and scope set out in the revised Project Memorandum, and revised Logical Framework and to review the FDCF management performance with particular respect to their terms of reference.
