Created in 2012, Financial Sector Deepening Africa (FSD Africa) is a £30 million, DFID-funded financial sector development programme or ‘FSD’ based in Nairobi. It aims to reduce poverty across sub-Saharan Africa by building financial markets that are efficient, robust and inclusive.
The FSD Network is a group of nine financial sector development programmes or ‘FSDs.’ Located across sub- Saharan Africa, it includes eight national FSDs (Access to Finance Rwanda, Enhancing Financial Innovation & Access in Nigeria, Enterprise PartnersFSD Kenya, FSD Moçambique, FSD Tanzania, FSD Uganda and FSD Zambia) and two regional FSDs (FinMark Trust in Southern Africa and FSD Africa). 
The FSD Academy is a private online resource for FSD Network staff to share and access existing/new learning materials and other financial sector development resources. It aims to avail important learning materials to support the work that FSD's do thereby enhancing synergy. The academy also offers training and is currently running a course on market facilitation.
