Helping to end poverty worldwide

An inclusive financial system, where all classes of society have access to financial services, is essential for shared prosperity and inclusive growth. Financial inclusion fosters entrepreneurship and job creation, and gives individuals the tools to improve their livelihoods on many levels – financial security, access to health care and education, climate change adaptation and mitigation, and more.
