Suriname has been a focal point for regional efforts at financial inclusion in general, and issues relating to creating a financial identity and using alternative data in consumer and commercial credit reporting specifically. PERC’s involvement in Suriname has largely been in coordination with multi-laterals and NGOs, and has included:
- Leading workshops on consumer credit reporting with the IFC/World Bank Group;
- Outreach to domestic and regional industry executives; and,
- Advocacy with government officials.
