What is Financial Inclusion?
Financial inclusion is about ensuring everyone has access to appropriate financial services, enabling them to:
- Manage their money on a day to day basis, effectively securely and confidently.
- Plan for the future and cope with financial pressure, by managing their finances to protect against short-term variations in income and expenditure, and to take advantage of longer-term opportunities.
- Deal effectively with financial distress, should unexpected events lead to serious financial difficulty.
People who achieve these goals will enjoy significantly improved life outcomes.
