A basic account is a secure entry point for previously unbanked people to become more resilient. It also opens a wealth of opportunities – for investing in education, or growing their businesses. A six-year partnership with the Mastercard Foundation and WSBI, Scale2Save is a programme to establish the viability of low–balance savings accounts and to understand the extent to which savings allow vulnerable people to boost their financial resilience and wellbeing. Weselina Angelow, Scale2Save Programme Director, presents the programme, findings and the way ahead in our latest blog.
