Financial inclusion supports economic and human development and reduces inequality: access to relevant and affordable financial products and services, including payments, savings, credit and insurance, enables individuals and businesses to transact conveniently and cost-effectively, save and plan for the future, and deal with unexpected emergencies. Standard Bank has identified financial inclusion across Africa as a material issue.
