Financial Inclusion in its simplest form is the ability to access appropriate ﬁnancial services in the formal ﬁnancial system. However, it is not just about a bank branch or correspondent on the corner. It is about clients using sustainable, responsible ﬁnancial products that add value to their daily lives.
In other words, there is the need to develop the right product, at the right place, at the right price. The successful implementation of the national ﬁnancial inclusion strategy is not only in the interests of the consumers of ﬁnancial services.
The Government also stands to beneﬁt from a population that is ﬁnancially capable and therefore more productive; ﬁnancial institutions beneﬁt from increased uptake of ﬁnancial services and the economy as a whole will beneﬁt from a deeper and broader ﬁnancial system.
