Adinolfi brings 10 years of experience working on global financial inclusion, with a specific focus on digital financial services. Based in D.C., Adinolfi will spearhead BanQu’s expansion efforts both domestically and internationally.
During Adinolfi’s career at Chemonics International, she managed several of USAID’s economic growth projects and led business development efforts globally. At FHI 360, Adinolfi held several progressive roles including Technical Adviser, Digital Financial Services. “Working on the challenge of financial inclusion over the past decade, I started to see ID as one of the biggest barriers to financial access,” said Adinolfi. “BanQu stood out to me as a multifaceted solution to help people lift themselves out of poverty,” she continued.
