Pafix 2016

Financial inclusion stands as a goal unachieved in the growth of developing countries, though some progress has taken place in recent year. However, such progress remains short of helping such countries develop their national plans. According to the World Bank, there are still as many as two billion adults that remain out of the banking system, though financial inclusion is critical to reducing poverty and achieving inclusive economic growth. Citizens of any given country and their businesses when financially included can improve their cash flows, find investment in their skills, assets, or new business, and are ready to face health issues.

Innovation in financial services can help in bridging the financial inclusion divide in our part of the world, in terms of access, quality, and returns. Technology in the disruptive digital era are a cornerstone for inclusion, being innovative and creative of new business patterns around the world. Digital financial services also allow women convenient access to financial services, especially in rural areas, thus allowing them the opportunity to face emergencies in life.
