According to the World Bank, over 2 billion adults worldwide currently lack access to formal financial services. 73% of them live in 25 countries, all emerging markets across Africa, South America and South Asia.
Despite these huge number, statistics also show that are over 36,000 Financial Services Providers (FSPs), from Banks and Microfinance Institutions (MFIs) to Credit Unions (SACCOs) and Financial Services Associations (FSAs) that are all independently working towards providing both for-profit and non-profit financial services to as many people as possible.
However, they are facing several serious challenges, chief among them: Low capital efficiency, Broken processes and Underdeveloped ecosystems. We believe that these particular challenges can be overcome through innovative approaches supported by the right technologies.
So instead of re-building the wheel, Finplus combines the power of its robust digital finance technologies with the existing infrastructure of Financial Services Providers globally to accelerate progress towards the goal of universal access to financial services, with a primary focus on the 25 countries that are home to 73% of the world’s unbanked adults
