Dear Digital Finance Partners and Stakeholders,
We are writing to you today to announce the second cycle of JoPACC’s Digital Financial Services Champions Program and to extend to you the invitation to nominate those who you believe are worthy of this recognition.
The DFS Champions program, which was first launched in 2021, aims to recognize local change-makers -champions- who contribute to the expansion and acceptance of digital financial services. The targeted champions can be community members or employed workers who are proactively taking the initiative to assist digital financial services users, spread awareness, or implement innovative ideas to increase the acceptance of digital financial services and ultimately increase financial inclusion in the kingdom. By recognizing those champions, their exposure to wider audiences and networks will be expanded, allowing them to maximize their outreach and collaborate with different market players to implement and expand their ideas.
To identify and select the champions, we rely on our partners and market stakeholders to nominate suitable candidates for this program. The deadline for the nominations will be on the 16th of May 2022, after which JoPACC will evaluate the nominations and announce the selected champions in June 2022. Please note that self-nominations will not be accepted.
We in the digital financial services and financial inclusion ecosystems have long recognized the importance of champions in furthering our goals and helping to accomplish our missions. We would highly encourage all stakeholders to put forth their nominations in order to help us give recognition where it is due.
You can learn more about the Digital Financial Services Champions Program here, and meet last year’s champions here. Nominations can be made here. Feel free to pass on this email to other relevant entities and sector players. We look forward to receiving your nominations,
