Abstract

Session 6: Financial inclusion

Although the region pioneered the development of microfinance, about 90% of the 180 million poor households in the region have little or no access to institutional financial services. Based on regional experiences, this session focuses on (i) understanding of demand for financial services of the poor (ii) innovations in supply to reach more people with a broader range of products at lower costs and (iii) how to create an enabling environment for the development of an inclusive financial system that is efficient, fair and secure.
