Financial inclusion is expanding around the world, transforming the lives of widely diverse populations. From market women in Kenya and small farmers in India, shopkeepers in China and villagers in the remote Colombian mountains, millions are gaining access to the financial tools and services they need to stabilize their lives, take advantage of opportunities, and plan for the future.
