Financial Inclusion

2 Billion Without Accounts

The World Bank estimates that 2 billion people don’t use formal financial services and that more than 50% of adults in the poorest households are unbanked. Some 200 million small and medium-sized enterprises are also unbanked. Without access to formal financial services, the world's poor are often left with no choice but to make money management decisions that are risky, expensive and unreliable.
