The need for financial inclusion by the numbers

Without access to credit, marginalized communities will continue to face challenges. Financial inclusion seeks to bring more consumers into the financial system and enable access to safe, affordable financial services and products. Additionally, it represents a critical step toward closing the wealth gap and helping underserved communities build generational wealth.
