Fewer than 27% of adults in developing Asia have an account in a formal financial institution. This limits the opportunities for these consumers to manage their daily lives, cope with unexpected difficulties, develop their entrepreneurial skills, and plan for the future. Furthermore, only 33% of enterprises in developing Asia report having a line of credit or a loan from a financial institution, which is prohibitive on business growth. Since these businesses are firmly rooted in their communities, the lack of financial access means that they are not able to create jobs for the local population and help improve their livelihoods.
These challenges make the need for financial inclusion evident. It is estimated that the cumulative effect of digitally driven acceleration in financial inclusion could boost GDP by 2% to 3% in markets like Indonesia and the Philippines. For populations that are earning less than $2 a day, that would translate to a 10-percent increase in income in Indonesia and the Philippines. Our investments aim to increase the number of quality jobs created for the underserved individuals and communities, helping small businesses become more sustainable, as well as assisting marginalized people in gaining access to affordable financial products so that they can become more financially secure.
