For young people living in poverty, the transition from adolescence to adulthood can be precarious as they face increasing financial pressures and limited access to resources and opportunities.

To help youth successfully navigate this transition, Freedom from Hunger launched the Advancing Integrated Microfinance for Youth (AIM Youth) initiative in 2009. Together with The MasterCard Foundation and local implementing partners in Mali and Ecuador, Freedom from Hunger developed and tested financial services combined with financial education for youth.

The results and lessons learned from this initiative can be found in the following papers:
