Brookings Financial and Digital Inclusion Project report 2015
The Brookings Financial and Digital Inclusion Project (FDIP) evaluates access to and usage of affordable financial services by underserved people across 21 countries.
There are about 2 billion adults around the world without formal financial services. Access to and use of formal financial services allows individuals to make payments efficiently and securely, save for the future, gain independence, and manage economic shocks. At the macroeconomic level, bringing more people in to the formal financial system is an important ingredient in promoting broader economic growth. The data and analysis presented in the FDIP report and scorecard can help governments around the world maximize the effectiveness of efforts to broaden financial inclusion by assessing financial inclusion initiatives and providing actionable policy recommendations.
